Barrack Street

The McManus Collections Unit is the permanent home for the city’s history, archaeology and natural history collections. A vast array of items are cared for here, everything from birds to butterflies, coins to costumes and fossils to foreign artefacts. Tours and open days, which either provide a general ‘behind the scenes’ look or focus on particular parts of the collection, are available on selected dates. These events are free but places are sometimes limited, so booking can be essential. Please see our website for details.

Disabled access throughout.

The Collections Unit is managed by Leisure & Culture Dundee. For more details, please visit their website.
