The museum houses a fascinating collection of gigs and carriages and an eclectic array of everyday objects showing the way of life and traditions of the north east of Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The original aim was to collect and preserve personal photographs and memories of Fochaberians, past and present. What has been achieved is a growing archive of fascinating photographs, papers and maps documenting the history and heritage of Fochabers and the surrounding area. The Heritage Centre is an excellent source of local information for anyone researching their family history.
RAF Dallachy was built for Coastal Command in 1942/43 and was home to 144 RAF, 404 RCAF and 455 RAAF squadrons. The exhibition includes photographs and personal memories of the men and women who flew and maintained the Beaufighter aircraft which saw action in the North Sea and along the Norwegian coast. Dallachy's worst day was Black Friday, 9th Feb 1945 when 9 Beaufighters were lost during an attack on German shipping in a Norwegian fjord.
