A very busy Sunday

On Sunday 8 June 2014 not only was Dundee Museum of Transport open as usual but we also were busy promoting it at two local events – WestFest and The Tayside Classic Car Club Show.

Some photos from both of these events have now been added to our Events Photos 2014 page.

Don’t forget that time is running out to submit entries for our own Motor Show on Saturday 10 August 2014 – click here for more information and to download an entry form.

Update: Seeking funding to publish important book about Caledon Shipyard

Further to this post in May 2013 we are delighted to announce that we have secured the necessary funding for “The Caledon Shipyard – The Foundation, The People, The Ships and its Demise” by Jack Reilly to be published.

In particular we would like to thank the following for their support in making sure this very important book can now be sent for printing:

Seeking funding to publish important book about Caledon Shipyard

Dundee Museum of Transport is working hard to secure funding to pay for the publication of Jack Reilly’s incredibly detailed book “The Caledon Shipyard”.
Our target is to raise £10,000 and we have just managed to secure a donation of £1,000. This, along with two £2,000 donations, now means we are half-way there.
This book is an incredibly detailed history of a very important part of Dundee’s ship-building heritage and deserves to be read by as wide an audience as possible. See more images on the Scotland’s Places website (external link).
If you or someone you know may be willing to make a donation towards the remaining £5,000 then please get in touch. All our details are on the contact page of our website.
