“Fantastic visit. A great addition to Dundee!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I came down to have a look on the Sunday of the opening weekend and was welcomed by the friendly volunteers and loads of old vintage veichles on display in the street (which was closed off even!!!). The exhibits on display in the actual museum itself were excellent and the staff were well knowleged and it was clear they were very passionate and enthusiastic in what they do. There were boards next to the majority of the vehicles within the museum explaining in detail their history which I thought was good, some even had pictures from the past which was even better. However, the premises is quite small given the huge collection but after being told that it is just the temporary premises it does make sense and hopefully they will get the old tram depot in a few years.. thanks for the blast to the past and all the best for the future x

“An excellent new museum for Dundee”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I'm really glad Dundee has this new museum - there's a large variety of cars, buses, vans and trams from the 20th Century, with interesting displays and friendly staff. I reckon you can get a real insight into the heritage of a place from its public transport, and it's great to see that the Museum of Transport even has one of the old wooden trams that used to run the rails in Dundee.

Out of interest, my favourite vehicle was the old Mercedes(?) ambulance - kinda reminded me of the Ghostbusters-mobile! My son's favourite was definitely the old Volvo Ailsa bus - he enjoyed being up in the driver's seat.
