McManus Collections

The McManus Collections Unit at the former Barrack Street Museum is the new permanent home for Dundee’s History, Archaeology and Natural History Collections.

The relocation
of these Collections to this facility will give more space to the main McManus Galleries and Museum in Albert Square for improved exhibition and visitor facilities when the main galleries and museum reopens.

I recently had a walk-past the Albert Square site with the City Council’s Director of Leisure & Communities and it is clear that good progress is being made with its refurbishment.

There are tours of the collections at Barrack Street today and tomorrow – click on the headline above to find out more.
