V&A Dundee Museum will open on Saturday 15 September 2018. Malcolm Roughead, VisitScotland’s Chief Executive, said: “The opening of V&A Dundee will be a game-changer for tourism in Dundee, propelling the East of Scotland into the global spotlight and shining a light on all this incredible corner of the country has to offer.
“Such a highly-regarded attraction has the potential to transform local tourism and will undoubtedly draw visitors from far and wide. This represents an unprecedented opportunity to showcase Scotland’s cultural offering, in turn growing the local economy, creating jobs and sustaining communities.

“With prestigious publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and The Guardian all naming Dundee as a must-visit destination in 2018, there is a real sense of excitement and anticipation in the region.
“As we move towards September, VisitScotland will continue working closely with V&A Dundee and the wider industry to capitalise on what promises to be a remarkable new era for tourism in Scotland.”
