Decided to take a few friends who were visiting me here in Dundee. Despite having been many times I never tire of this place it is a must see if visiting Dundee and suitable for all ages. staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. You can save money by buying a 'double ticket' for entry to Verdant and the Discovery boat.

Excellent museum, so much information about the city in the days of the Jute industry. Very well laid out and helpful staff with good cafe for refreshments at the end of our visit.

This a piece of history that had a major role in the making of the city of Dundee. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my visit.

As there was work going on I wasn't able to go upstairs at the end of the tour using the outside staircase as lift out of order so was given a small discount and a cup of tea while my husband looked around there.

This is a must visit for Dundonians and visitors alike. Excellent audio displays tracing a most important part of Dundee's history. Housed in a former factory it shows the complete picture of the manufacture of jute cloth from beginning to end product. We had the benefit of a guide who had been employed in one such mill and that certainly... More

A trip down memory lane. One of the best things I have done is going round this place. Old Dundee is brought out in this mill.

What a great place and shows off much of Dundee and it's Jute industry. Very informative, nicely set out and lovely old location. If you time it right you can see the old machines working. Staff are great, well informed and you also get narrative at the beginning from an actual person.
