Dundee Museum of Transport

Dundee Museum of Transport is located in Market Mews in Market Street, the site of the city's former abattoir. After several years of planning and development, the museum opened to the public in 2014. Its exhibits include cars, vans, trucks, buses, models, equipment and signage through the years. Highlights include a prototype Lotus Excel, vintage Bullnose Morris, Austin A35 and Triumph 1500TC cars, together with a single-decker Travel Dundee bus dating from 1997 and a Dundee Corporation Daimler bus which entered service in 1951 and was restored at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum at Lathalmond. There is also a Joseph Grant jute lorry, a steam-roller operated by Angus County Council in the 1930s and a horse-drawn ambulance. Restoration projects include a double-decker Aberdeen Corporation electric tram dating from 1901, Dundee's last horse-drawn tram from 1887, which was found in a Perth garden, and a 1972 Dundee Corporation Daimler Fleetline bus.

Officially opened by Dundee Lord Provost Bob Duncan on 26th April 2014, the museum is run by an enthusiastic group of volunteers. The long-term aspiration is to relocate to a permanent home in the former Maryfield Tram Depot.
