We are an independent museum which preserves the transport heritage of Dundee and the surrounding areas. We reflect the past, showcase classic vehicles and look forward to a net-zero, sustainable, transport future reflecting Dundee as a forward-thinking city. We aim to educate and inspire visitors, giving them a memorable, hands-on experience whilst they explore the museum’s collections, exhibits, interactive displays and activities.
Led by trustees and a small staff team, 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.
This team looks after all aspects of the visitor experience from greeting visitors, ticketing, serving refreshments, and explaining the exhibits. They are the face of the museum.
The Build Team are called on when there is anything to make, mend or fit in the museum. They turn their hand to anything, from entirely refitting and decorating an exhibit hall, to mending a lock.
The Restoration Team are responsible for restoring any vehicles or exhibits.
This team is responsible for caring for and documenting the museum’s collection.
