Preview of Exhibits Heading to Dundee’s New V&A Museum

Scotland’s Victoria & Albert museum, scheduled to open its doors in 2017, has released a photo gallery previewing one of its much anticipated collections, which will celebrate Scottish design heritage and help develop contemporary talent.

The museum will be part of a large waterfront development on the Tay River in Dundee, recently voted as the ‘best place in Scotland.’ It will be home to some of the world’s finest designs from fashion to cars, showcasing everything from David Bowie’s stage costumes to the everyday sight of people’s living rooms. Other exhibits include a silver jewellery box created by Irish designer Anna Traquair in 1905 and a silk tartan dress made in France in the 1850s.

V&A Dundee director Phil Long commented on the museum’s opening, saying, “Scotland has an amazing history and I don’t think people know enough about it. We will tap into the V&A’s huge worldwide archive to bring some of the most iconic objects and, when possible, artworks and masterpieces to Scotland for years to come.”
