Scotland's Jute Museum@Verdant Works

Scotland’s Jute Museum @ Verdant Works is the tale of two cities, both of them Dundee. For thousands in the 19th century it was a city of long working hours, poor pay and ill health. For the privileged few it was a city of opportunity and wealth. At Verdant Works the rattle and the roar of the original restored machinery, the Juteopolis film show and computer displays transport you back over 100 years to an era when jute was king and Dundee was its realm. The history of jute and the lives of Dundee folk employed in the jute industry you see a city brought together with a common thread – see how they lived, how their lives compare to the wealthy jute barons and the links they forged with India, which latterly took over the manufacture of Jute under the beady eyes of Dundee people who managed their factories out there. Relax in the friendly atmosphere of the café and browse around the well stocked Gift Shop, for a day out with a difference, visit Dundee and Verdant Works, truly a day to remember.
