I have been here many times, and will be back many times in future as the McManus Galleries is a jewel in Dundee's crown and is an absolute credit to our city. I always make a point of taking friends who are visiting and havnt been here before as it gives real insight into Dundee's past and present. Free entry, lovely cafe and fantastic displays, a place that Dundee is rightly proud of.

El museo por dentro está bien, tiene una parte de arte moderno y otra con historia de Dundee, desde la prehistoria, los romanos y diferentes etapas y formatos de la ciudad, connlos cambios que ha experimentado, sobretodo con la construcción del puente sobre el río Tay. Y por fuera es un edificio espectacular. Vale la pena pasear tanto por dentro, que es gratis, como darle la vuelta por fuera y admirar su arquitectura.

We spent a couple of hours viewing and learning about a variety of things, all about Dundees industrial past, connections to far flung places in the world, modern history, the great and the good prominent people who have shaped Dundee and the wider world. Also the natural history and ancient history going back to Pictish times. Fascinating, educational and varied. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The exhibits range from modern art to animal specimens, but they are not cluttered. Each exhibit is properly classified and displayed. Although the museum is not large, the exhibits are placed in an orderly manner and the exhibition halls are seamlessly connected. After the tour, The experience is excellent. There are no superficial exhibits (such as setting up a screen to show videos or interact), which is the first of its kind among the museums I have visited so far.

Delightful visit, this beautiful museum has got to be a must see on any visit to Dundee. Super friendly informative and helpful staff are on hand to help in anyway they can. The cafe is a real treat too, the delicious fruit scone and Latte to be had in the cafe set us up for tackling the upper floors of what is a gem in Dundees crown. Thank you for a wonderful visit. The picture is our grandson tuckered out with all the pointing and Wowing.

I'm so glad that I visited this place first on my visit to Dundee... It's free entry and gives a fabulous overview of the history of the city, which added to my enjoyment of the other attractions.The staff were friendly and helpful.I'm a bit of a geek, so I spent a long time reading all the information.I visited alone and spent a very pleasant couple of hours there, but still went back a couple of days later for another look!

Museum based on local life and times. Lots to see and promote discussions. My 10 year old granddaughter was amazed at the display about COVID-19, "But that's not History, it was only three years ago!" It was very clean and fresh in all areas with friendly approachable staff. The café was bright, and the tea and bakes we had were generous and tasty.

Visited on a weekday and was relatively quiet. The reception staff were very helpful in telling us information on what can be found in the eight galleries and on what floor. It’s a beautiful building inside and out and contains some very interesting works of art and history of Tayside. Contains a cafeteria and small souvenir shop and entry is free.
