The Future

Dundee Museum of Transport is currently based in temporary premises at Market Mews on Market Street in Dundee. Whilst we continue to improve our visitor services and exhibits at Market Mews we are preparing for a move to a bigger site.

Our intention has always been to move to Dundee’s only remaining building celebrating our city’s tram history – the Maryfield tram depot.

The Maryfield Tram Depot is right in the heart of the Stobswell area between Stobsmuir Park and Morgan Academy on the Forfar Road .

Finally early in 2015 we were able, with assistance from Dundee City Council, to purchase the tram depot and surrounding two acres of grounds.

The now dilapidated 120m long building has been on the ‘Buildings at Risk’ register since 2010 and is Grade B listed. We now have new and innovative designs from local architect Andrew Black and his team that will give Dundee a world class transport museum housed in an iconic building. Efforts are underway to secure the £2 million funding to turn our designs into reality.

We have a dedicated website www.maryfieldtramdepot.org giving further information more about the project.

You can register your support for the project in a number of ways; by signing up to be a member, making a donation, volunteering at the museum or visiting our current home on Market Street.
