  • This is a beautiful building and if you are into architecture you'd probably be happy just looking at the different rooms. There are 8 galleries in total laid out across 2 floors with lift access. The selection of art and artifacts is strong and diverse and covers a large chunk of history. There are various activities and events so worth checking the website before you go. Entry is free with donations welcome. Cafe is excellent. Well laid out with surprisingly good menu. Coffee was very good and service was fast. Shop was also very good with many local themed items that make for nice souvenirs. There isn't quite as much directly for children as offered in some galleries but there are plenty of items that would be of interest to many. Staff were particularly nice and very friendly and helpful through the entire gallery. It is situated just a short walk from train station which was very convenient
  • Another gem in Dundee's crown. Divided into 4 sections creates something interesting for everyone. Admission is free and time spend there is not wasted. Loads of objects, painting and memorabilia. Dundee presented in relation to the far past, recent past, animal kingdom and artist's exhibitions. Time spend there is a good time.
