Amazing museum!
Jul 2021 • Couples
This museum is a great experience! The cars here are unique and the various types of transport are very interesting!
There is also a whole area dedicated to “the future of transport” which is very interesting to look at!
Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area!

Well worth a look
Jul 2021
Visited when they had an additional display of Police and Fire Appliances. Volunteers no paid staff. Very well informed and helpful. Explinations of exhibits are good. Emphasis is on transport local to the area. Nice to see buses and commercials well represented. For a small site it has lots more than the vast V & A on the waterfront. car parking is available on the road outside. Might also be some on site. Note for some reason the gift aid entry is higher than the regular entry.

Fun visit
Jul 2021 • Family
We took our 5 year old here today. There was so much to see and it was really interesting. Our son loved the Railway room and the old Fire Engine. The staff were so friendly & we enjoyed sitting in the cafe playing board games too. We felt safe walking around & there was lots of hand gel dotted around. Great to have this in Dundee & will be back again.

Excellent museum, well worth a visit!
Jul 2021
Fantastic museum with lots to see. Visited recently with my grandparents and they said it was "their kind of museum". Couldn't get my grandad to leave, he got to see his dad's first car and they both reminisced about the Dundee trams. I loved hearing about the history of Dundee through their eyes. Will definitely be back as there was so much on display, I definitely missed some things. The staff were so friendly and offered their insight into some of the vehicles, making it hugely informative but fun experience. The cafe also serves a lovely cup of tea from excellent staff and there was also a great selection of souvenirs in the gift shop, something for everyone. Overall, it was probably the best museum I have been to because of the warm and friendly atmosphere, not often found in larger museums.

Popped in with my youngest son and doggy
Jul 2021 • Family
Had a wonderful visit this afternoon, lovely museum and my son loved being shown around and given such interesting insights into vehicles and history of Dundee.

The personal touch and passion of guides and friendliness to us and our dog was first class.

Go and see for yourselves.

A very likeable museum with lots to see and very friendly and informative staff. The small cafe is good for a tea and a Tunnock's teacake.

An unexpected gem of a day out
Jul 2021 • Family
What an unexpected gem of a day out! My grandchildren ages from 13yrs down to 2yrs were able to sit in some of the vehicles which delighted them. Staff were very friendly and willing to tell us about the vehicles we saw. My youngest grandson was fascinated with the model railway and in his element to be able to sit up in the cab of the fire engine. The cafe had a big selection of games which we played and my coffee was free. We were able to look around again before going home. Looking forward to the Emergency Vehicles day.

Timeless travel
Jun 2021 • Friends
A varied collection, something for all interests and some impressive exhibits. Highlights for me being the cycles and motorbikes, particularly great to see Mark Beaumont's round the world bicycle. Fantastic volunteers made the visit special, super friendly and informative.

Transport with a smile.
Jun 2021 • Family
My grandson loved the huge bus and was very interested in all exhibits. It was a walk down memory lane for me. The museum is not huge but has enough to keep kids interested without getting bored. Chitty chitty bang bang is there and a huge aeroplane built from bamboo and cotton. We were so glad we made the trip. The shop and cafe are pretty well stocked and we enjoyed our wee break before heading home.
