Dundee Heritage Trust

Charity description

Dundee Heritage Trust logo
Dundee Heritage Trust is a registered charity with responsibility for the care and interpretation of Captain Scott’s internationally significant Royal Research Ship Discovery and the associated Discovery Point Antarctic Museum and for Scotland’s Jute Museum @ Verdant Works, one of the nation’s most important textile museums.

Dundee Heritage Trust is responsible for Discovery Point and Verdant Works – both multi-award winning Accredited 5 star museums.

We are charged with the conservation of an ‘A’ listed building and the RRS Discovery, one of the world’s most important ships. We have in our care two Recognised Collections of National Significance, relating to Discovery and polar exploration and the Dundee textile industry. We provide high quality learning services to over 6,000 school children and countless community groups.

It costs around £1 million each year to run the two museums. Dundee Heritage Trust receives a small subsidy from local government that equates to just 6% of the running costs. Accordingly, we require support for a wide range of projects including the care and conservation of our collections which includes Discovery, exhibitions, learning programmes and capital developments. Donations can be general or specific to particular projects or aspects of our work.

Charity No: SC 011328
