Dundee Museum of Transport Re-opening Reception

The team at Dundee Museum of Transport would like to thank members, volunteers and invited guests for coming along on a very chilly day yesterday, Friday 1st February, to get a sneak preview of the new displays for 2019 and to hear about the museum and it’s future plans.

Following a welcome address by the Museum Chair John Letford MBE, Museum Manager Samantha Walker provided an overview of the museum and its activities in recent years. With visitor numbers increasing by over 20% year-on-year, greater volunteer involvement and new and continuing partnerships with local organisations, the museum is going from strength-to-strength.

The Museum’s Vice-Chair, Peter Webber, then provided an update on the Maryfield Tram Depot project.

Thanks to all who attended

Following consultations with the local community, members and volunteers and other key supporters, a new, phased development was announced that would see the former tram depot brought back to life as a museum.

To provide a full picture of the proposal, was officially launched. The museum team felt it was important for this project to have a dedicated website that could be updated as the project develops and also provide a forum for our supporters to share their views and ideas.

We would once again like to thank all those who attended the reception and are looking forward to meeting the thousands of visitors that we will welcome in 2019. We would also like to thank our amazing volunteers for the weeks of hard work in preparing the museum for the season ahead and for the hospitality that they provided during our re-opening reception.

The Museum is now open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:30am – 3:30pm (last admission 3pm) this February and then open daily (except Tuesdays) from 1st March.

From 1st March 2018 admission prices to the museum will be as follows:
