Uncertain Territories and Museum Mooches

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

Our programme for 2023 starts with a new exhibition, Uncertain Territories – Women & Nature, in the Tower Foyer Gallery.

The exhibition celebrates a variety of women artists and scientists from Dundee and beyond who have explored the natural world and left tangible traces through the artefacts, specimens and artworks in the University of Dundee Museum Collections. Whether through pioneering research, collecting or creating, these women have helped us to understand nature and the world around us.

The exhibition runs until 1st April and is open Monday to -Friday 9.30am-7pm and Saturday 11am-4pm.

We’re also delighted to announce our latest series of Museum Mooches, part of our Museums for Wellbeing initiative. Each time we meet at the Enquiry Centre at DUSA and take you to a different part of the campus to explore some interest displays and collections.
