What a little genie in the lamp place to visit, a very good mixture of interesting and varied mods of transport, as an insight of local history down the years. Well worth the visit for young and old.

Dundee Museum of transport is a short distance from the city centre towards the east. It is on Market Street which runs between East Dock ~Street and Broughty ferry Road. Hope this is helpful
