Venue Description

Housed in a splendid Gothic Revival-style building and displaying Dundee's main collection, the museum has been at the heart of art and culture in the city since its opening in 1867. The McManus annually hosts a number of special exhibitions; these often reveal rarely seen works from the museum collections or share some stunning works of art, photography, paintings or sculpture that are touring from other renowned galleries collections.
