Dundee Museum of Transport: A journey into the past


Dedicated to telling the story of Dundee’s trams, trains and ships across the years; there are also ever-changing displays of cars and other vehicles on show.

Highlights include a replica of Dundee’s first flying machine and a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car.

Vehicles from both local and national collections are on display at the museum. There is also a cafe and shop.

Temporarily housed at Market Mews in the heart of the city, the volunteer-run attraction is now gearing up for a move to a permanent new home in the former Maryfield tram depot.

The Forfar Road depot is thought to be the oldest-surviving building of its kind in Scotland and will be a fitting location for a superb collection built up by the enthusiasts, highlighting many little-known aspects of the city’s automotive heritage.
