Dundee Museum of Transport, Dundee

#8 of 15 in Museums in Dundee
For some considerable time a number of independent groups and individuals have been quietly acquiring and preserving our local transport heritage. However until now there has been no way of bringing them all together and offering the public a chance to see their "hidden heritage".



In February 2010 representatives from several local groups met with a view to establishing Dundee Museum of Transport (DMofT). A committee was elected with a view to advancing the plans as quickly as possible and on 2 June 2010 Dundee Museum of Transport was granted charitable status.



On Saturday 26 April 2014, after over four years of hard work, Dundee Museum of Transport opened to the public for the very first time. Although we are based in Dundee we aim to represent the transport heritage of Tayside and beyond.

Dundee Museum of Transport is a SCIO Registered Charity no SCO41529

  • This is a lovely museum tucked away on the fringes of Dundee. It is signposted but situated in an industrial complex, so you need to be vigilant. It has some great vehicles, including the car "Chitty ...  more »

  • Great wee gem. Staff exceptional. Just popped in, was a great find. Well done. Keep up the great work
  • A very interesting places to visit for all age groups. My children aged between 6 and 13 all enjoyed it very much. The staff are keen to tell you about the exibits and answer questions. We also took part in an educational visit which involved an interesting tour. We enjoyed it so much we bought a family membership so we can visit more often!
  • Staff were very friendly. Santa was great with my grandchildren. Thank you
  • I'm not really interested in transport but there's lots of interesting history about Dundee. I'm sure there would be something of intetest for everyone here.
  • When first arriving it looked really small inside but there are 4 areas. It was really great. Old trams, buses and fire engines etc. Great place for a day out. You get to sit in the old buses and fire engines. Loads to see.
