This September, the V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum, will open to the public. It will be the only V&A museum in the world outside of London, posing as an international centre for design; a place of inspiration, discovery and learning.
Visitors to V&A Dundee will experience the remarkable story of design past, present and future, and the vital contribution it makes to all of our daily lives.
The new museum will feature permanent galleries of Scottish design, as well as an ambitious international programme of changing exhibitions showcasing the very best of design from around the world, new design commissions, fast-changing installations by emerging designers and creative projects developed through its learning programme.
Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee, said: “After many years of planning for V&A Dundee, we are absolutely thrilled to announce the date of the new museum’s opening.
“V&A Dundee brings something new to Scotland. It is the country’s first museum dedicated to design, which visitors will be able to experience and get involved in very many ways. Particularly important is that the new museum enables major V&A exhibitions to be seen more widely by more people across the UK.
"So, I am especially excited that part of V&A Dundee’s opening programme will be the breath-taking exhibition Ocean Liners: Speed & Style, the first of many ambitious exhibitions at V&A Dundee that will show how our lives have been – and always will be – shaped by design.”
