If you or your family worked in the jute industry then you will be transported back in time with the distinctive smell when you enter the exhibition. From the clerical offices to the range of machinery and the stages of jute, it is an insight into the biggest industry Dundee ever had. The short films are very educational. I'd you know that women were the main workers for decades and that men stayed at home to look after the children? I certainly didn't. There was one thing I felt was missing and that was the overwhelming clatter of machinery that pervaded the mills. Perhaps it's a health and safety thing but I think a short audio recording would enhance the experience.
