Hadn't been here for years and it was one of the highlights of our stay in Dundee. Lovely art set in a beautiful building. The museum part was very interesting- we learnt a lot about the people and history of Dundee.

Beautiful cathedral like building and immaculate condition but really visited to see iconic Oor Wullie and his bucket. My English husband did not really get this but part of my weekend growing up

We were in Dundee for a weekend break to visit the V&A which was a disappointment. First visit to the Gallery. Nice mix of exhibits. We also had lunch in the cafe very reasonable priced.

We had about an hour to see the Gallery. At the time of the visit there was an emphasis on portraiture (a few Scottish colourists) and a good Victorian collection (Henry Raeburn and Rossetti) my friend also liked the ceramics. Well worth a visit.

McManus Galleries is a lovely blend of Dundee history along with ever changing art exhibitions. The building itself is steeped in history and not lost its charm either. The gift shop and coffee shop are added bonuses but I always like to go and check...More

This is a must see for visitors to Dundee. I prefer this to any other tourist attractions in Dundee. Pass a pleasant couple of hours studying the Art galleries.

Interesting history of the city and industry, the art galleries have both traditional Scottish painting and a wonderful portrait gallery including some photography, painting and one unusual 3D portrait
