Owner description: Garioch Heritage Centre opened in Inverurie in October 2017 and houses the collections of Garioch Heritage Society. The Society has been researching the area’s history and gathering artefacts which shed light on the working and domestic lives of local people since 1987. The Centre tells the story of life in the Garioch, from the early 20th century to the present day. The Centre sits in the renovated Inverurie Loco Works and keeps the memory of the Loco Works alive, all under the watchful eye of the original 20-ton crane. There is a gift shop, cafe and activities to amuse younger visitors. You can enjoy a guided tour by our experienced volunteers and hear their stories of growing up in the Garioch. Entry is £5 for adults and free for accompanied children.

I have lived in the area for 39 years and was surprised at how much i did not know.Very interesting will have to go back soon as i was told displays would change from time to time.Did not have time to look at the books in the reading area on local history etc something for a rainy day. Well done to all involved

The historical items are presented well. Engaging for both children and older people. The model of the locomotive works is superb. Great to get some context from the modellers themselves.
