  • Only went to see The Great Tapestry of Scotland. Totally blown away. Gorgeous setting and helpful staff. Definitely going back to see the rest.
  • Fascinating journey through time and space - from South Asian jute plantations to 18th century Derbyshire weaving mills, to the 1900s Dundee, a real chance to get under the skin of history. Special thanks to Alison for her volunteer guide work, operating the machines and handing around the sample materials. The kids loved it.
  • Excellent way to spend an afternoon. Lorna the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable but this visit's highlight was Lilly who actually worked here. She was an amazing lady with a lovely personality. Worth going just to meet her.
  • Very informative, friendly staff, despite their being no PlayStation xbox etc or soft play the kids actually really enjoyed it. Great bit of local history.
  • Very interesting attraction. Tells the story of jute production in Dundee and the towns connection to India. Of of Dundee three r's.

Where to stay in Dundee

The city center of Dundee teems with hotels, from budget to high-end options. During the summer when university students are away, you can also stay in empty student accommodations. Contact the university directly if this is something that interests you. For a quieter holiday with a focus on the outdoors, consider staying in nearby Angus. Here you'll discover picturesque small towns and villages complete with charming bed and breakfasts.
