Learning At Dundee Museum of Transport 

Here at Dundee Museum of Transport, we have a brand-new education offer for all primary stages and abilities. Why don’t you come and visit Scamp, who is featured throughout our children’s trail? Our “Transport Throughout Time” trail will take you through the story of local transport pioneers, Dundee’s last tram, electric cars and everything in between. This tale of Dundee’s transportation history encompasses a variety of disciplines.


If you would like, our knowledgeable tour guides can tell you about the past, present and future of transport, whilst taking you through the interesting and packed exhibition halls to help you complete some fun activities. Or, you and your class can discover exciting facts and complete questions as well as other activities in a self-guided trail around our museum.


This trail is designed to help pupils understand the development of transport from the 18th Century until the present day. This can be a self-directed or a guided activity, just let us know!

In this facilitated object handling workshop, pupils will have the opportunity to engage with our collection through storytelling and handling. Our narrators will take your pupils on an immersive cultural journey whilst hearing the stories of local transport innovators, stories from Dundee’s past alongside a look into what the future of transport may be like.
