In 2007 the first discussions were held to bring a design museum to Dundee that would change the face of the city. Now, 11 years later, the V&A has finally opened its doors for the first time.

A plethora of exhibits from numerous collections fill the uniquely shaped building – brought to life by architect Kengo Kuma – which has attracted interest from across the globe.
