Countdown to V&A Dundee opening
The design museum will welcome visitors from September 15.
The countdown to the opening of V&A Dundee has begun, with a month to go until the design museum welcomes visitors through its doors.
The £80 million attraction on Dundee’s waterfront will open to the public on Saturday September 15.
Museum bosses marked the milestone with a series of drone images of the building designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.
V&A Dundee director Philip Long said: “We are thrilled to be preparing to launch the first dedicated design museum in Scotland, and to reveal a remarkable new piece of architecture by Kengo Kuma.
“The new museum is at the heart of a truly incredible city and we look forward to celebrating the opening.”
