Maryfield Tram Depot
Help restore maryfield tram depot 
brick by brick

Help us raise £25,000 to restore damaged bricks at Maryfield Tram Depot.

We’re asking our valued supporters to pledge £10 or more to cover the costs of restoring each brick.

All donations will help the restoration work and help us in our goal of creating a permanent home for Dundee Museum of Transport in this historical landmark.


The Museum is now closed for winter.

We will be back in March with refreshed exhibitions, activities and a new programme of events for spring and summer.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!


Dundee’s museum of transport

Here you will hear the stories of local transport pioneers and innovators, explore our diverse range of vehicles from both local and national collections, and even get up close to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The story of Dundee’s transport spans a range of genres, from the city’s tram network, to its railway and maritime history, and everything in-between. Our enthusiastic guides will recount tales of the city’s transport heritage and lead you through the exciting and packed exhibition galleries. A visit to the museum will allow you to discover the past, the present, and the future of transport of the city and surrounding area.

Experience, Explore and Enjoy…

Volunteering opportunities

Could you spare a few hours a week to volunteer with our visitor services team? We’re currently looking for front of house volunteers to welcome visitors, issue tickets, serve in our shop and café, and act as guides around the museum.

If you’re looking for a new challenge then get in touch with our volunteer co-ordinator to find out how you can become part of this friendly team.

We’ll provide full training and a uniform, and support you to make the most of this opportunity as you support the museum to share Dundee’s transport heritage.

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
