    Well preserved ship with a excellent onshore exhibition right next door to the V & A. Well worth a visit.

    An excellent place to spend an afternoon. The exhibits were well presented and there was plenty for children to do. Excellent value for money.

    An eclectic museum of all things with an emphasis on Dundee. Galleries in the museum run the gauntlet of topics from archaeology to zoology, fine art to photographic art, local history of Dundee from trade to industry and an eclectic collection of artefacts from all over the world. A fantastic museum. One of the best features is a recreation of a Dundee street from the 18th/19th century. It was great fun walking through that.

    Well worth the climb - though you can also drive straight to the top - to see views over Dundee and the surrounding countryside. Very interesting information boards to help you understand the geology and history of the site.

    These statues add character to Dundee. Try to find this bronze umbrella just 30m away. It is easily missed, but is a superb piece of street art.

    On our visit to HMS Unicorn, Bob the tour guide was excellent, extremely knowledgable regarding all aspects of the ship. Would highly recommend.

    Lovely little museum. My nephews love all things transport related, especially the tractors. Staff are very friendly and are more than happy to answer questions on any of the displays. Will visit again for sure.

    Located a short train bus ride from the centre of Dundee, this is a small castle with an interesting collection of exhibits. Note there is a need to climb spiral staircases. There is also plenty for children to do as well as a well equipped playground nearby.
    Note the castle is free, but donations are accepted.

    Came here with family and grandchildren. Children loved the wildlife centre and we spent a good deal of time here as it kept them interested for quite a while . We then decided to have food in the cafe . Limited menu of sandwich / wraps/ baguettes / panini etc served with small bit of salad with a lovely dressing and tortilla chips at around £6-£8 . Fair enough ……..BUT children chose a little lemurs lunchbox @ £5.25 each which was very disappointing. … in fact total rip off as it contained a half sandwich , suckable yogurt , packet of cheap crisps ( tomato flavour - which kids didn’t like and price marked 30p ) and a small carton of juice . The value of each lunchbox would have been a £1 . They were still hungry after having it so had to get them some other snacks from the car! Shame this spoiled a good day out. If we come here again would definitely pack a picnic lunch for everyone .

    Even if you don't like OOR Wullie it's still a good statue to enjoy. A brilliant, amusing statue which is a excellent photo opportunity.

    Absolutely brilliant experience seeing all the different animals up close. Unusual breeds of donkeys, alpacas, sheep, goats and great feeding them. The walking of the alpacha was great fun! Would highly recommend this

    This museum looks fantastic on the outside. It looks like an erode cliff edge, with the layers of concrete resembling exposed layers of sedimentary rock. Inside, the small rectangular shaped windows provides views of the Tay and water pools evoking images of a moving ship.

    The exhibitions inside were disappointing. There's hardly anything to see. I honestly have no idea what most of the building is being used for. Such a shame when you compare it to the museum namesake in London.

    The grounds are very big and the structured play areas are amazing for children of all ages. The wildlife 'park' was a bit disappointing as many of the animals were having a nap or simply hiding (or were they really there). The bears were the best exception!

    What a fun addition to downtown Dundee! The penguins running along a short wall at the church were so much fun to see. Not over the top, but a happy addition to the local scene.
