the museum

Founded in 2010, the museum opened in 2014 and has become a popular addition to the city’s tourist attractions.


Dundee Museum of Transport is an independent museum which preserves the transport heritage of Dundee and the surrounding area. Its core aim is to educate and inspire visitors, giving them an authentic experience whilst they explore the museum’s collections, buildings, and activities.​

​Led by a voluntary board of Trustees and the Museum Manager, the museum is also very dependent on the commitment, time, and energy of its volunteers who bring many years of experience and skills to the team.


If you could spare some time to support Dundee Museum of Transport, then please get in touch. There are many ways in which you could help.


Small teams and individuals deal with a wide range of tasks including: publicity and advertising, membership and volunteering, finance, funding, vehicle storage services, events, and the acquisition, archiving and display of exhibits.
