Unit 10 , Market Mews, Dundee, Angus, DD1 3LA

    Welcome to Dundee Museum of Transport, Dundee's latest addition to Scotland's city of culture. We are currently in our temporary premises at Market Mews so why not pop down for a visit!?

    For some considerable time a number of independent groups and individuals have been quietly acquiring and preserving our local transport heritage. In February 2010 representatives from several local groups met with a view to establishing Dundee Museum of Transport (DMofT) and, on 2 June 2010, we were granted charitable status.

    On Saturday 26 April 2014 Dundee Museum of Transport opened to the public for the very first time to showcase the previously hidden transport heritage of Tayside and beyond and is currently based in temporary premises at Market Mews, Dundee.

    On Thursday 6 November 2014 we were finally able to announce that we had successfully acquired the former Maryfield Tram Depot in Forfar Road Dundee which will become our long-term home. A huge amount of work and considerable funds are required to bring this iconic building back to its original glory. In the meantime we will continue to develop our temporary premises at Market Mews.
