Dundee Museum of Transport Official page for the Dundee Museum of Transport. For some considerable time a number of independent groups and individuals have been quietly acquiring and preserving our local transport heritage.

However until now there has been no way of bringing them all together and offering the public a chance to see their "hidden heritage". In February 2010 representatives from several local groups met with a view to establishing Dundee Museum of Transport (DMofT).

Earlier this year Tayside 4x4 Response made it possible for emergency service and care staff to continue their vital work. They braved the extreme snow, ice, and cold for many miles to ensure our communities, and the vulnerable in our communities, could still get the care they need.

So come show your appreciation for these selfless men and women at the Dundee Museum of Transport, 10am - 4.30pm Sunday the 5th of September!

Just bought my ticket for your upcoming event. I wanted to do gift aid, https://www.dmoft.co.uk/gift-aid-form but site insists on me signing up to a mailing list in order to submit my details.
had a lovely visit with our two dogs on Monday - and you asked for some photos of them in your vehicles so I hope these are okay (Alfie, the terrier puppy, was more keen than Jodie, our lurcher!)
Daisy loved her visit. Thank you!
Lovely visit here today. Great staff who shared lots of info with us. Cafe is nice too and not too pricey. Thank you for a very enjoyable visit.
Had a really lovely time going round the museum today to compile a collage of images. Many thanks for all the help (and coffee) from everyone there. Will suggest members in our Brechin photo society (founded 1888) pay a visit sometime.
I am in the process of going back a bit further in the DundeeBuses Timetable Archive. As at today there are currently over 3900 post-deregulation timetable files in the main directory, 23 pre deregulation leaflets, alongside other things – all from the “leaflet days” post 1982/1983ish. I recently bought Graeme / Tails’s collection hence now have almost all stuff 1997 to date timetable wise, with only Whitfield Douglas and Fintry to do post 1997 to finish, alongside some maps / ticketing leaflets etc.)… You can see the files so far at
