V&A Dundee


Where play meets research, curiosity meets discovery and ideas meet action

V&A Dundee is packed full of learning opportunities centred around design to inspire and delight visitors of all ages. We offer an engaging and exciting programme of events and workshops inspired by our building and exhibitions, so everyone can share our enthusiasm for design.



Get inspired at home with a range of challenges, design prompts and resources inspired by the museum, our exhibitions and our programme.


Our national school programme has been co-designed with teachers and is delivered by practising designers.

From games design to fashion and from architecture to product design, our schools programme encourages pupils and teachers to be curious, ask questions and solve problems.

Young People

This programme has been co-designed by our Young People's Collective, a group of 16 to 25-year-olds from across Dundee.

With relevant, diverse and forward-thinking opportunities available to young people, we have a range of activities on offer outwith school and college hours to help young people develop new design-related skills and interests.


Our programme encourages you and your family to be curious about design together.

Fun, friendly and sometimes mischievous, our family workshops and events will be an exciting way to explore design.


Providing an enjoyable and accessible introduction to design is fundamental to our Communities programme.

This programme helps support equal access for all audiences. Placing a strong emphasis on co-design, wellbeing and inclusion, we work with people from a range of backgrounds, interests and needs, including visitors who are visually impaired, deaf and hard of hearing or have additional support needs.

Community workshops and events are held both inside the museum and across the local area.

Designer in Residence

Our residency programme supports designers to develop new skills, take risks, undertake research and create exciting, new work influenced by our collection, building and themes.
