Dundee Mountain Film Festival in partnership with the National Library of Scotland and the Central Library, Dundee is pleased to announce the acclaimed exhibition, You are Here A journey through maps will be on display at Central Library from 5th October to 14th December 2023.

This fascinating display features images of some of the millions of maps held at the National Library of Scotland. Split into 10 lavishly designed and detailed components, the exhibition poses questions such as:
Do all maps show real places?
Do maps go out-of-date?
How is the spherical world made flat?
Why is north to the top?

Complemented by a useful glossary of cartographical terms, and an interactive map-handling box featuring maps from the National Library's collections as well as map tools, globes and curiosities the exhibition educates and entertains map readers of all ages.

Admission free.
