Free admission to the museum which is over 2 levels. Great variety and look at Dundee's history from local artists to local industry. Well worth visiting and more impressive than the V & A which is a short walk away passing the historic Caird Hall...More

Visited instead of going to the new V&A and it was so worthwhile, from the city history to the paintings and the transformation of the building which is superb.

Glad you enjoyed learning of the history of Dundee including the extensive refurbishment of The McManus, which brought the facility, which opened in 1867, into the 21st century - re-opening to the public on Sunday 28 February 2010.

I can’t believe it has been over 30 years since I was last at the McManus gallery. It’s so good! We only visited one of the rooms and the cafe, and both were great. I can’t wait to visit the rest of the exhibits.

We found this more interesting than the V&A, there was more about Dundee, its industry, namely jute trade , jam, journalisum printing and ship building,

A great museum with something to interest everyone, from Victorian art to the history of Dundee. Fabulous building from the outside & inside. Waiter service at the café was a bonus.

Glad you found our exhibitions interesting, especially Dante's Dream on the Day of the Death of Beatrice by Dante Gabriel Rossetti from 1880. This is the most important of Rossetti's paintings in Scotland and is a personal favourite!

Great museum with friendly helpful staff. A great selection of paintings and objects well laid out. Within easy reach of other popular sites in Dundee city centre.
