Support us

As a charity, your support helps us inspire people to make a difference

V&A Dundee is more than just a museum. We aim to provide inspiration, discovery and learning through our mission to enrich lives through design.

Following a series of changes to keep the museum safe and enjoyable, we're delighted to reopen and welcome you back.

As a charity, your support really makes a difference. We welcome donations during these uncertain times, to help us ensure design continues to positively influence lives both now and in the future.


From championing design to our inspiring learning programmes, everything we do is made possible by generous people who share our vision and passion for design.

To support our operating costs and ensure V&A Dundee continues to thrive long into the future, we need to raise almost £1.5 million annually through fundraising. This will enable us to bring world class exhibitions to Dundee and deliver our inspirational learning programme. We passionately believe that the benefits design provide to society can be revolutionary.

Whether it is £5, £50 or £5,000, donations of all amounts make a difference.


Members go free! Our Membership gives you free entry to our changing exhibitions, exclusive previews, retail discounts, offers and more…
