“It’s fantastic to have National Express Dundee on board as the main sponsor of our Museum. The whole team has been working extremely hard to establish it as a home for some of the area’s most important heritage and to remember those local pioneers who may have been forgotten over time.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming the public through our doors. I’m sure people will be delighted to see some of the displays we have for them and we can’t wait to show them off!”
Managing Director of National Express Dundee Phil Smith said:
“We are delighted to be entering into this partnership with Dundee Museum of Transport. Not only are they celebrating Dundee and Tayside’s ‘hidden heritage’, they’re celebrating the heritage of our own business, displaying some of the vehicles and memorabilia used by the bus company in its former guise as the Corporation.
“This new attraction is an excellent boost for the city of Dundee and we are very much looking forward to supporting Jimmy and his team on their opening weekend and beyond.”
The Museum will house a collection of vintage vehicles, memorabilia and transport-related items some of which relate directly to the main sponsor National Express Dundee when it was owned by Dundee Corporation.
With a Jazz Band, bouncy castle, stalls, etc this will be a great family weekend. Market Street will be closed and over 150 vehicles, ranging from vintage to military and commercials, will be on display. Refreshments will also be available on both days.
