A Scottish museum is raising money to create an outdoor space that will tell the story of hydrogen use in transportation.
The Grampian Transport Museum in Alford started a Crowdfunder campaign earlier this year as it takes steps to take its visitor experience outside and make better use of its 15-acre site.
The museum’s first significant external exhibit is a 2014 Van Hool hydrogen fuel cell bus generously gifted by Aberdeen City Council.
The bus will be repurposed as a video theatre to extend Grampian Transport Museum’s ‘Probing the Future’ exhibition by telling the local and wider story of the development of the use of hydrogen for transportation.
“Covid-19 has given us all a new appreciation of outdoor spaces. At Grampian Transport Museum it has highlighted to us the fact that our site is an underutilised asset,” the museum said.
“We now plan to make better use of our site by improving access to the local community, extending the visitor experience outside and re-introducing our ever-popular track activities!”
