Open 7 days
Temporary closure of V&A Dundee
Following official guidance, V&A Dundee will close from 18 March. During these exceptional times, the health and safety of our visitors and staff is our number one priority.
While there is no dedicated car park for the museum, there are Dundee City Council owned car parks across the city.
Public parking is available on South Crichton Street, directly adjacent to the museum on the Tay Road Bridge side. This offers nine parking spaces and a further six dedicated access spaces for Blue Badge holders. This area can also be used as a ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ point for visitors to the museum.
Other nearby council car parks include Discovery Point and Slessor Gardens.
Dundee City Council’s website provides more information on parking around the city.
In advance of any coach party visits, coach operators need to familiarise themselves with our guidance and share the supplied information with their drivers.
Designed with inclusion and accessibility in mind, the museum offers a range of access provisions to make everyone feel welcome.
Disabled person badge holders may park in any car parks free of charge and without time limit. The public parking directly adjacent to the museum includes six access parking spaces for Blue Badge holders.
BSL interpreted and live described tours for deaf and visually impaired visitors are available.
For exhibitions requiring a paid-for ticket, groups of 10 or more will receive a discounted rate. To make sure you have the best experience, let us know in advance if you intend to visit in a group of 10 or more.
We offer group bookings for talks and guided tours of the museum. To find out more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
