After closing its physical site earlier this year, the Vagina Museum has announced an official reopening date
Following a series of pop-ups and a two-year stint in Camden Market, the Vagina Museum (the world’s first bricks-and-mortar museum dedicated to lady parts), moved into its Bethnal Green site last March. Then, nearly a year later, they announced that they had received notice to vacate the space immediately. Their educational and destigmatising presence has been missed and, thankfully, with a little help from VM fans, they’ve managed to find a way back.
The Vagina Museum’s new home – which is still in Bethnal Green – is set inside twin railway arches and includes three galleries as well as an event space and cafe. The move has been helped along with the help of donations; the Museum smashed its £85,000 crowdfunding target, securing the funds to cover the costs of deposits, fit-out and more. Regarding the upcoming opening, the Vagina Museum Tweeted: “We’re clit-ernally grateful for this. We literally wouldn’t be here, reopening our doors in our beautiful new home if it wasn’t for you.”
The grand reopening will be on Sat 4th November, as will the launch of the Vagina Museum’s first exhibition in the new space, Endometriosis: Into the Unknown. From the basics of endometriosis to the latest research, this show will do a deep dive into the common but little-discussed gynaecological condition, differentiating myths from reality along the way.
