Discover the University of Dundee’s extensive collections across several buildings in the city.

The University of Dundee has no permanent museum building in which to showcase its 30,000 artefacts, artworks and specimens, acquired over the institution’s 140 year history. Instead, both temporary exhibitions and permanent displays can be found in buildings across the city.

The Tower, Foyer and Lamb Galleries all host regular exhibitions from the collection, with numerous artworks from the university’s holdings also on display in the Dalhousie Building. Some of the most impressive paintings can be found at University House, while the Chaplaincy is home to a stunning stone cross by Hew Lorimer.

The D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum occupies the Carnelley Building, the Tayside Medical History Museum is based at Ninewells Hospital and the Harris Building is home to a permanent display of history physics equipment. Head to the website for details of all of these displays and more.
