We’re looking forward to seeing you!
We are Scotland’s design museum. Designed for everyone, firing imaginations and sparking curiosity in design across Scotland and around the world. Come and be inspired and explore our welcoming space on Dundee's waterfront.
While there is no dedicated car park for the museum, there are Dundee City Council owned car parks across the city.
Public parking is available on South Crichton Street, directly adjacent to the museum on the Tay Road Bridge side. This offers nine parking spaces and a further six dedicated access spaces for Blue Badge holders. This area can also be used as a ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ point for visitors to the museum.
Other nearby council car parks include Discovery Point and Slessor Gardens.
Dundee City Council’s website provides more information on parking around the city.
Designed with inclusion and accessibility in mind, the museum offers a range of access provisions to make everyone feel welcome.
You can access a virtual tour of the museum to familiarise yourself with the museum and the facilities.
Disabled person badge holders may park in any car parks free of charge and without time limit. The public parking directly adjacent to the museum includes six access parking spaces for Blue Badge holders.
BSL interpreted and live described tours for deaf and visually impaired visitors are available.
Younger visitors are very welcome in the museum. We have a children’s menu available in Tatha Bar & Kitchen, and our takeaway offer includes options for younger visitors. We welcome your choice to breastfeed anywhere in and around the museum.
There is a buggy park on the ground floor, but please note it is not staffed so should be used at visitors' own risk. We also have baby changing facilities on Level 0 and Level 2.
Explore in and around the museum with one of our self-guided trails.
