V&A Dundee has welcomed its 100,000th visitor - just three weeks after opening its doors.

Incredibly, the waterfront design museum is already a fifth of the way towards meeting its first-year target of half a million visitors.

The lucky 100,000th person through the doors was Sheila Harkness, who was visiting with her family. She received a special gift of V&A Dundee goodies along with a Family and Friends Membership.

V&A Dundee director Philip Long said: “I’m very proud and delighted that, in just over three weeks, 100,000 people have already visited the museum.

“The feedback we have received from visitors has been fantastic and means so much to all of the team here at V&A Dundee.

“It’s been a joy to see people enjoying the galleries, exhibitions and learning activities as well as exploring the wonderful building designed by our architect Kengo Kuma and enjoying all it offers.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming even more visitors to Scotland’s first design museum.”
