Safe Santa on the Bus

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Safe Santa on the Bus. Santa on the Bus is an annual festive event run by Dundee Museum of Transport, where children and adults can meet with Santa and explore the museum!

Our Santa on the Bus event is now fully booked. We are opening a waiting list should Covid restriction changes lead to cancellations. If you wish to be added to the list please email Kate at

After the move of Dundee into Tier 3 of the Scottish Government’s Covid Protection Levels, we are seeking clarity over whether we will be permitted to have Santa visit. Please check the up to date guidance on the Scottish Government website before booking. If we are unable to accommodate Santa this year a full refund will be issued.

COVID-19: Because of COVD-19, we are taking extra steps to ensure the event remains fun and safe

  • All visits with Santa will be restricted to one family group with a maximum of two adults and three children
  • Touch points – Santa’s bus will be cleaned in between visitor groups
  • Visit times will be staggered to ensure social distancing

Cost: The cost is £8 per child and accompanying adult (additional adults can pay our standard admission price of £6 when they arrive). Included in this cost is a visit with Santa, admission to the museum for an accompanying adult, free hot drinks, a small gift, and a personalized letter from Santa’s elves to be sent at a later date.

To keep everyone safe we have set a maximum of two adults and three children in any one time booking period. Just select the number of children who will be visiting Santa when you book.
