various places around Dundee city.

club had agreed to help the museum with tourist signage some time ago,
but Covid got in the way. It is an ill wind as they say, but the
original idea to provide one sign increased to five, when the city
council found other venues had closed down in the intervening
time. A call from Derek Simpson at the museum told us that the council
had offered all these sites for the museum signs as well. This was
an offer that just had to be accepted. Derek and Ron have worked
on this project for some time.
We will continue to follow the re-opening of the museum, complete with a new look logo design.
Expansion plans are afoot to provide more facilities and events to
entertain visitors of all ages. Worth a visit to Market Street next
time you are in the area.
