On entering we were given an explanation of their social distancing rules. The lady greeting us also said if there is anything we need to just ask and to treat the place as our own.'
'Perfect for all ages. Highly Recommended!!'
'Excellent variety of vehicles and very interesting with friendly staff.'

Transport is my husband's interest, so I didn't really expect to enjoy this. Boy, was I wrong! We visited quite late in the day and had the place to ourselves. One of the staff appointed himself our personal guide, which was great as we got all sorts of anecdotes that we wouldn't have heard otherwise. The museum is arranged in three halls, each individually themed. The exhibits are well presented; you can walk all around most of them and so appreciate them from all angles. My (adult) daughter took great delight in activating the siren on the fire engine!

Visited here on a family trip to Dundee. What a great little museum. It’s packed with great vehicles and interesting displays. The staff were absolutely brilliant and really made the visit even better.
They have a one way system in place and it works really well. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is there and really cool to see in the flesh.
The staff are all volunteers and it shows with their enthusiasm and we’re on hand to answer any questions and tell stories about their interesting finds. They even let our son sit in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Fire Engine which he was thrilled about.
I would highly recommend a visit here if you are in Dundee
