About The McManus: Dundee’s Art gallery and Museum

The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum is home to a fine and applied art collection that is recognised as being of national significance to Scotland. Established in 1874, it comprises over 10,000 items spanning four centuries of production. At its core is one of the finest collections of 19th and 20th century Scottish painting in the country. This is the legacy of Dundee’s nineteenth century industrialists – who were significant patrons of artists, organised highly regarded selling exhibitions and amassed huge private collections – and the strength of the City’s art college. In recent years collecting has focused on acquiring contemporary work that amplifies themes from Dundee’s history, supporting local identity and a sense of place.
