Discover more about Dundee Heritage Trust’s unique and varied collections, designated by the Scottish government as ‘Recognised Collections of National Significance’, demonstrating their uniqueness, authenticity, comprehensiveness and national value. These are split between the Royal Research Ship Discovery and the associated polar exploration material and our industrial textile collections charting the dominance of the jute industry to the later man-made fibres in the city.
