Just in time for Christmas we are pleased to announce that we have added many more items to our online shop including many DMofT items, a wide range of transport-related books, a special five-visit ticket deal and special bundles to save you even more. Plus if you haven’t already joined you can add a membership at the same time!
After a very busy week when we have literally welcomed thousands of visitors to our newly-opened Museum we have now added some photographs from the Opening Weekend event to the Events Photographs 2014 page.
Also on this page is a video previewing some of Museum’s exhibits currently on display, courtesy of Alan Richardson.
Don’t forget that when you take out a Museum membership you get unlimited free admission until 31 March 2015!
On Saturday 18 January 2014 a team from Dundee Museum of Transport, with tremendous assistance from Nixon Hire Dundee, travelled to Perth where Dundee’s only surviving horse-drawn tramcar had been found in a back garden being used as a summerhouse.
Online news and entertainment TV station The Dundee Channel (external link) interviewed Dundee Museum of Transport chairman Jimmy McDonell at the Baxter Park Gala Day on 7 August 2010.
Two new slideshow videos have now been added to the Gallery section of the website. They can be accessed by clicking here or selecting ‘Videos’ from the ‘Gallery’ menu.
The first video shows a compilation of a number of photographs and other items that were collected for our successful exhibition held in Dundee’s Central Library in October/ November 2010. The first part of the slideshow is mainly dedicated to Ambulances but a number of other vehicles are also featured. Later on there are some railway photographs, views of Old Dundee and very sad views of the destruction of Dundee’s trams.
The second video slideshow shows all one hundred photographs that were gathered together to chart the development of Dundee’s Buses though the 20th Century – from Scotland’s first trolley bus service in 1912 through to the takeover by National Express in 1997.
