The V&A has brought over 10m to Dundee since opening less than one year ago

We all know that the V&A Dundee has achieved phenomenal things for Dundee’s economy.

The £80 million waterfront museum, designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, opened its doors to the public in September last year.

A final evaluation report by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which also contributed to the funding of the museum, says the museum gave an estimated £10.3 million boost to the economy in its first seven months.

The report says more than 100,000 people across the globe were part of the museum’s pre-opening programme.

It also states that 96,000 people purchased tickets to see the Ocean Liners exhibition while 380,000 had visited the Scottish Design Galleries by the end of March this year.

Incredible results from Scotland’s first and only design museum!
