“Excellent family attraction”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Visited this attraction on 2 day trip to Dundee. Well worth tracking it down. broad range of historical periods and artifacts covered as well as worthwhile range of artworks. What took me aback was how fantastic the building itself is. There is a history of the building and the site displayed on the ground floor and it is both architecturally lovely and in superb condition due to recently completed renovations. Go and see it!

“Interesting museum + good cafe”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Fine and central for having an enjoyable lunch in clean + tidy surroundings. Have been here quite a few times with friends and family - good choice on menu - soup + sandwich/pannini or just tea/coffee + cake. Staff are efficient + pleasant.

The museum is a worth looking round too!

“Great museum of history local and foreign”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

firstly this place is free. the building has beautiful architecture and decor. there is a lot to see, hear and feel within these walls. you will find historical artefacts, local historic items, old and modern art. we found this was a perfect way to spend a snowy afternoon.

“Can't complain about a free museum!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is a nice little art museum to visit if you're in the area and like that sort of thing. There's a nice selection of paintings, and they get really great exhibits(the da vinci drawing one was fantastic!).
