DAVAA Events /Dundee Museum of Transport Tour
April 10, 2018 @ 11:30 am
DAVAA members are invited to a tour being held at the Museum on the 10th April at 11.30. At this event we would like to briefly find about the journey and plans for the future of DMOT.
Having been formed as a registered charity in 2010 with a few members and no dedicated location the Dundee Museum of Transport has grown into a fully functioning accessible museum. Their premises at Market Mews Dundee are a temporary location with the overall aim of moving to the former tram depot at Maryfield in the next few years. It’s collection is constantly changing and displays tell the stories of local transport pioneers and innovators.
As well as bringing history back to life, there are plans to restore the Grade B listed building of Maryfield. This will not only preserve an important building in Dundee but will provide a future home for the Museum.
During 2017 they held a number of talks and weekend events, which proved very popular. Year on year the visitor numbers continue to grow both from the local area and critically from further afield. That said there is still the feeling that the Museum is one of Dundee’s best-kept secrets and it is their aim in 2018 to really increase their profile amongst locals and tourists alike.
This event is free to DAVAA members and Associate members.
