About the Museum

The Biggar Albion Foundation was formed in 2001 from beginnings in the Biggar Museum Trust. It looks after The Albion Club and The Albion Archive and is based in Biggar, Lanarkshire, Scotland where Thomas Blackwood Murray (co-founder of Albion) originally lived and where he built and tested the first Albion car. Membership is open to all interested in Albions, whether owners or not. One of a series of museums and places of interest within the town of Biggar. The Albion building houses vehicles and archives of Albion Motors, a commercial vehicle manufacturing firm started in 1899. A small motor museum is open at weekends. Albion was established in 1899 in Glasgow, the second city of the Empire, already renowned worldwide for its engineering excellence. Albion's motto "Sure As The Sunrise" was adapted into the logo which featured on the radiator and badges of their models for many years and helped to establish their identity wherever they operated throughout the world.
