Albert Institute and McManus Galleries, Dundee

The McManus Galleries are located in the upper floor of the Albert Institute in Albert Square (Dundee) which was built in 1867 by Sir George Gilbert Scott to a Victorian Gothic architectural design. The permanent exhibitions include archaeological, local historical and costume galleries. The main galleries of the McManus are the Victoria Gallery, which houses a collection of 19th Century Scottish art, the McKenzie Gallery, which houses Scottish art from the period 1880-1950, the Costume Gallery, housing textiles and costumes from Dundee and around the world, and the Albert Hall, which houses fine and decorative art from Scotland's national collections. There are also temporary and touring exhibition spaces.

The building is currently closed for a major refurbishment, re-opening in 2008.
