Selkie Trail

Join Selkie the Seal on a trail to find out more about our incredible building!

Pick up a free, family-friendly printed trail and pencil from our Welcome Desk then explore the museum. Sketch, wander and find out fun facts about our architecture and design. When you’ve finished, collect an Official Explorer stamp and Selkie’s Seal of Approval!

Selkie the Seal was designed by award-winning Scottish textile designer Donna Wilson, especially for us. Donna took inspiration from the Scottish coastline, as well as our aquatic neighbours in the Tay, and this cuddly seal was given the name Selkie after a public vote on social media.

This is a self-guided trail inside the museum. No need to book, just turn up!

Labyrinth

Find us where the city meets the Silvery Tay.

Labyrinth is a self-guided welcome and wellbeing trail to show you what V&A Dundee has to offer.

From reflecting on objects in our Scottish Design Galleries, to drawing views of the silvery Tay – this is your museum to explore, share ideas, meet and make friends and find calm.

Head on over to pick up a copy of Labyrinth from our Welcome Desk and start your journey with us. You can also listen to the accompanying Spotify playlists here.

Also, did you know Dundee is a UNESCO City of Design? There's a lot to get involved in and Creative Dundee’s 99 Things to See and Do in Dundee is the perfect crowdsourced guide to help you get to know the city.

Labyrinth was created by students Rhona Forbes, Caitlyn Harrold, Rory Doyle, Siddharth Jakhmola and Zack Daniels in a collaborative project between V&A Dundee and University of Dundee’s Schools of Art & Design and Medicine.
