This is a stunning building with an amazing collection of artefacts. This museum has been restored and offers fascinating insight to local and worldwide history. Took a group of children there and they loved it too. A place all ages will enjoy.

Very impressed with the McManus. The building is beautiful and the art work was very inspiring. We enjoyed learning about the history of Dundee and the artists that came from this city. The rooms where they teach art classes are spacious and inviting! I wish I could teach here. The staff were polite and much more the entrance is FREE!
