The McManus is a Victorian, gothic building, built in 1867, which houses beautiful open gallery spaces where displays of art, history and the environment combine to offer a fascinating insight into Dundee.
Built atop a former marshland, The McManus suffered all sorts of structural problems before its renovation and re-opening in 2010. Today, Dundee's best-loved building stands, invigorated, and with a whole host of added bonus features. The gallery now features all sorts of modernised displays and interactive exhibitoin Those feeling peckish following a leisurely browse can sip on something caffeinated under rare rays of Dundonian sun.
A Creative Learning Suite has also been worked into the architecture of the building, meaning that the McManus can also accommodate all sorts of classes and workshops. A dedicated team leads regular crafty events, and guided tours of the museum and gallery are available. What's more, the Collections Unit also treats those interested to behind the scenes tours, if you're into that kind of thing.
