Dundee is the fourth largest Scottish city with some excellent cultural centers and three renowned museums. The Verdant Works is one of the Britain’s best museums, and brings the history of Dundee’s jute industry to life. The museum is housed in a restored jute mill, and there is a worthwhile guided tour where the whole process of jute making is explained in detail, and staff demonstrates how the production line works with functioning machines. There is plenty to keep kids entertained here as well. Discovery Point is an exhibition about Scotland’s first expedition to the Antarctic in 1901 aboard the Discovery, which was built in Dundee and is now docked here as well. Excellent displays recreate conditions aboard and at the base camp, where the team spent two harsh winters. The Unicorn is a state of the art gunship launched in 1824, and is the oldest British built warship still floating. The modern museum Sensation is designed for the young and energetic. It is a great place for kids with its interactive displays and hands on attractions. For example there is a huge head with a slide down through the nostril. You can also experience zero gravity in a gyroscope. Broughty Ferry is a pleasant seaside suburb about 4 miles from Dundee, and a long beach with great views. Broughty Castle is a picturesque 16th century tower with an interesting historical exhibition with information on Dundee’s whaling industry.
