What you will see
The story of jute and the story of Dundee are inseparable. The industry employed 50,000 people in the city at its peak and supplied much of the world’s demand for jute goods. As you explore the self-led museum at your own pace, you will:
- Soak up the atmosphere of the cobbled 19th-century courtyard.
- Enter a busy jute office of 1900 and meet some characters of the period.
- Find out how jute was harvested in India, how and why it came to Dundee and more about Dundee’s bustling docks.
- Experience the incredible sounds of the machines and see the jute process from raw fibre to woven cloth.
- See a typical Dundee ‘palette’, and learn about tenement life and the health of the mill workers.
- Discover who ‘kettle bilers’ were and all about the reversal of traditional gender roles in Dundee – finding out about mill girls, Suffragettes and the unions.
- Visit the Victorian Half-Time School and also see how the workers spend their precious leisure time.
- Enjoy drop-in family activities in our specially designed Red Box learning hub.
- Appreciate the stunning mill architecture from the two viewing platforms in the High Mill and watch in awe as the 1801 Boulton & Watt beam engine tuns into action.

By following our Responsible Visitor Charter, you can be sure of making the most of your stay while helping to look after the environment.
Give the driver a break – leave the car behind and see the best of our city by walking, cycling and using public transport. Many walking and cycling routes offer great views and access to places that cars can’t get to.
Buy local produce – support our local farmers and producers who play such a valuable role in growing the local economy and preserving the landscape by buying local and regional produce.
Reduce, reuse, recycle – waste less, reduce the impact on the environment and recycle your waste. Support local businesses and attractions by purchasing their ‘Bags for Life’ and cutting down on plastic use. Don’t buy bottled water. Bring a reusable water bottle and refill from the ‘tap’. When using toilet facilities, please use water wisely and remember not to leave taps running.
Look after the Tay – waste water ends up in the Tay River and finally, the sea, so be careful what you wash away. Help cut down on the phosphates going into our water systems by reusing towels in your accommodation to reduce the amount of washing. Save water by turning off the tap when brushing your teeth, and consider taking a shower instead of a bath.
Support local culture & heritage – visit important heritage buildings and museums and attend local events and festivals – to help keep Scottish culture alive.
Support sustainable tourism businesses – consider using tourism providers that are committed to looking after our landscape and wildlife and reducing its impact on the environment. Seek out, eco-certified tourism providers.
Enjoy your stay – and come back time and time again, and we can all help to protect this place for generations to come!
