Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works

Exhibitions

West Henderson's Wynd, Dundee, Angus, DD1 5BT

    Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works is a tale of two cities, both of them Dundee.

    “If it wasnae for the weavers where would we be? We'd be in the poor house or infirmary.”

    For thousands in the 19th century, Dundee was a city of long working hours, poor pay and ill health. For the privileged few it was a city of opportunity and wealth. At Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works the rattle and the roar of the original restored machinery, the Juteopolis film show and computer displays transport you back over 100 years to an era when jute was king and Dundee was its realm.

    Absorb the sights, sounds and smells; sense the earth tremble as the original machines roar into life. Hear the workers' tales as they confide their secrets and tell you of their hopes and dreams. With a stunning range of displays including film shows, multimedia computers and hands-on interactives, it's a great fun day out for all the family.
