Interesting pieces at the gallery and the art is lovely. Would be great if you had some space dedicated to the history of jam and journalism in Dundee - the Verdant Works covers Jute but the other 2 Js are missing.

One learns just about everything there is to know about Dundee here. Good displays on the entire history of the area. And a lot of good Scottish art. All displayed in an extraordinarily beautiful building.
