Welcome to Scotland's design destination

We are Scotland's design museum, on a mission to inspire and empower through design.

We advocate for the power of design – as both extraordinary and brilliantly ordinary, shaping our daily lives. V&A Dundee brings design from all over the world to Scotland and gives a new platform to Scottish designers.

Who we are

The first ever dedicated design museum in Scotland and the only other V&A museum anywhere in the world outside London, V&A Dundee provides a place of inspiration, discovery and learning through its mission to enrich lives through design.
