"The Finest Regiment in the World" was how Sir Winston Churchill described The Gordon Highlanders in 1900. So why not come and see why? A wonderful day out and a fantastic welcome await you at The Gordon Highlanders Museum where we are committed to preserving and sharing the legacy of this world-famous Regiment. The Museum is a Visit Scotland 5* attraction (the only 5* military museum in Scotland). It is located at St Luke's, Viewfield Road, Aberdeen, in the beautiful former home of prominent Scottish artist, Sir George Reid. However the Gordon Highlanders Museum is more than just a museum - it has a wonderful tea room, a gift shop and beautiful gardens all of which are staffed by volunteers and can offer conference and fine dining facilities as well. The Museum, in addition to displaying the permanent collection, has a full programme of events throughout the year, including a major annual exhibition (at present 'Shattered Hopes - The Gordon Highlanders in 1914'). It also provides an excellent learning and outreach programme to schools and community groups throughout the North East of Scotland, courtesy of our Education sponsors. The Gordon Highlanders Museum is an independent self-financed charity that receives no public subsidy. It is reliant upon visitors, donations and sponsorship to maintain its current range of activities. Opening Times: Early February - Late November Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 4:30pm

This small museum has preserved the history of one of the most significant fighting units in Scottish history. It is especially notable that the unit no longer exists, but has been merged with another and the Gordon name is gone. Our tour guide, a previous...More

Great little museum. Lots of helpful people on hand (all of whom were great with the kids!). Little quiz for the kids. Tea room looked nice, but was very busy so we didn't stay but we'll be back.

I have just read your question so huge apologies for not replying sooner. I have no idea on the painting but if you give them a call I am sure they would let you know. Perhaps you have already done this.
