The V&A Museum Dundee is a brand new design museum, which opened in September 2018. It took three and a half years to complete this amazing building, which sits proudly on Dundee waterfront. Japanese architect Kengo Kuma based the design on the dramatic cliffs along the East Coast of Scotland. This is an exciting new Scottish landmark in Tay Country, just a 25-minute drive from us at Elderburn Lodges. We definitely recommend a visit!
A Design Museum for Scotland
The V&A, or Victoria and Albert Museum, began in 1899, when Queen Victoria laid the first stone of the famous design museum in London. It holds a huge collection of design work in all mediums, spanning thousands of years. And now, the brand new V&A Dundee, tells the story of Scotland’s design heritage. As it brings some of the V&A’s wonderful exhibitions and collections to Scotland.
