V&A Dundee opened to the public on September 15, 2018. A new international center of design, proudly supported by the AFV&A, V&A Dundee showcases the brilliance of Scottish creativity and the best of design from around the world. It is the first dedicated design museum in Scotland and the only other V&A museum outside London, providing a place of inspiration, discovery, and learning with its mission to enrich lives through design.

Stretching out over the River Tay, V&A Dundee was designed by award-winning Japanese architects Kengo Kuma & Associates, who have also designed the new stadium for the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

At the heart of V&A Dundee is the Scottish Design Galleries, which features objects from the V&A’s collection alongside prominent loans from across Scotland and around the world. The centerpiece of these galleries is the restored and reconstructed Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Oak Room. Unseen for 50 years, this tearoom is one of the architect’s most important interiors.


Free general admission. Ticketed exhibitions at V&A Dundee are free to members of the AFV&A and V&A.

Open 10.00-17.00 every day (except 25 & 26 December)
