The current phase of the Caird Hall improvements at Shore Terrace means that Archives may have to close completely to the public at short notice. Warning of this will be put on our website.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Dundee City Archives holds the official records of Dundee City Council, of the former City of Dundee District Council, the former Corporation of Dundee and the former Tayside Regional Council.
The Centre also holds records retransmitted from the National Records of Scotland (NRS), such as kirk session minutes in the Presbytery of Dundee.
Records of businesses, societies and families relating to the area of the City of Dundee are accepted as gifts or deposits. They can be consulted in the Archive Search Room if they are in good condition and under any conditions of use set by any depositor.
The Archive Search Room is open to the public, by appointment:-
Monday to Friday: 9.30 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 4.30 pm
Staff at the archives can be contacted by e-mail at email@example.com or by telephone on 01382 434494
Callers should report to ground floor reception, 20 City Square. The Search Room is not wheelchair accessible but special arrangements can be made for people with walking difficulties to view items at 20 City Square.
