V and A Dundee
Few will have missed the fanfare surrounding the launch of the V&A Dundee in September 2018 – fortunately, it lives up to expectations. On entering, it’s hard to know which is the main event – perhaps it’s the permanent (and free entry) Scottish Design Galleries, the highlight of which is the Art Nouveau Mackintosh Tea Room, reconstructed in its entirety using the original oak panels. Or maybe it’s the building itself, designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma to resemble Scottish cliffs. Either way, it’s not an experience you’re likely to forget.
