Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works weaves the tale of jute with the life and work of old Dundee, from the incredible rise of the industry to its subsequent decline. At Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works the rattle and the roar of the orgininal restored machinery transport you back over 100 years to an era when jute was king and Dundee was its realm.

Added to that is a stunning mix of film shows, multimedia technology and hands-on interactives, making a great day out for all the family.
