There is lots to explore and learn in this museum, housed in the 19th century semi-circular Aden Estate farm building. You’ll get to know all about the history of Aden Estate and the Weel Vrocht Grun, (meaning well-worked ground) which tells the story of the farming industry in North East Scotland from the late 18th century to the 20th. You’ll also get a glimpse of how home and family life was for Jimmy Thompson, a horseman in the 1920s in the Horseman’s House. And if you like oatcakes you can even see how they were once made over an open fire.

There are many temporary exhibitions that are well-worth visiting and you’ll see many costumed guides around the museum so if you would like to know more about the farm, you can just ask them.

Opening Times: May to September from 10am to 4pm (last admission 3.30pm. Every day apart from Monday.

Costs: Free Admission
