This is a lovely museum tucked away on the fringes of Dundee. It is signposted but situated in an industrial complex, so you need to be vigilant. It has some great vehicles, including the car "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", which is amazing. Run by friendly...More

Went in and was leaving after five minutes. Only vehicle you could touch was the fire engine and no staff to be seen after I paid for the two of us. It would of been more sitting in the car park for 5 minutes.

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
