The first V&A museum in the world outside London and the first ever dedicated design museum in Scotland, V&A Dundee contributes to the global understanding of design and how it touches everyone’s lives, whether in the form of a beautiful object, an interactive game, or a better way of doing something. V&A Dundee welcomes you to the world of design and encourages you to explore how design creativity can be provocative, ingenious or simply breathtaking.

Discover the extraordinary yet little-known stories of Scottish design and its influence around the world in our Scottish Design Galleries. These tell the story of design – past, present and future – and the vital contribution it makes to all our lives.

Alongside, an ambitious programme of changing exhibitions, new design commissions and fast-changing installations by emerging designers, showcases the very best of design from around the world.

Designed by Kengo Kuma, the renowned Japanese architect now designing the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium – and standing at the centre of a £1 billion transformation of Dundee’s waterfront – V&A Dundee is a unique and complex structure with exterior walls which twist both horizontally and vertically. Scotland’s sea-cliffs inspired the form of the museum, its dramatic lines creating patterns and shadows which change with the weather, light and time of day.

High-quality facilities within V&A Dundee include an atmospheric 80-cover restaurant, an outdoor terrace with stunning views across the River Tay, a relaxed café bar, guided tours and a shop selling the best of Scottish and international design.

V&A Dundee was recently listed by the Los Angeles Times as one of the ‘World’s top 5 museums to explore in 2018’ and Dundee itself was recently named ‘Best in Europe’ by Lonely Planet. The city became the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design in 2014.
