V&A Dundee

A feat of design and engineering, the V&A Dundee is made of curving concrete walls that recreate the appearance of a Scottish cliff face. Membership starts from £25 per year, but Dundee-based students can gain a discount, and it confers unlimited exhibition visits and first-look opportunities at Members’ previews, alongside a 10% discount in the shop and café. They also have an excellent learning programme, with affordable workshops open to the public throughout the year. The current exhibition, Tartan, tracks the textile through time, exploring its various associations, from Vivienne Westwood counterculture to royal conservatism.
