Dundee Heritage Trust and its operating company Dundee Industrial Heritage Limited are both registered charities formed in 1985 to preserve and interpret Dundee’s industrial past. The Trust sprang from a small dedicated band of local people concerned that unless action was taken important aspects of the city’s history would be lost forever. Trustees are drawn from a diverse range of community and business interests in Dundee and Tayside.

As well as the Royal Research Ship Discovery, Dundee Heritage Trust has responsibility for Discovery Point Antarctic Museum and Conference Centre plus Verdant Works, one of the nation’s most important textile museums. Both sites are registered museums,5 star accredited with VisitScotland and have won numerous awards.

Through its trading activities Dundee Industrial Heritage Limited is able to generate the majority of its operating revenue. This income is mainly raised from visitor income plus some corporate and charitable trust support with additional support from local government grants.
