The V&A Dundee

A few shots of the new V&A Museum in Dundee which is due to open its doors on 15 Sep 18.  The V&A Dundee is Scotland’s first design museum and first ever design museum to be built in the UK outside London.  The spectacular building was designed by renowned architect Kengo Kuma who’s next project is designing the Olympic stadium for Tokyo 2020.  The V&A is part of a billion pound regeneration of Dundee waterfront which also includes a new railway station, several new hotels, Scotland’s first urban aqua park and Slessor Gardens an open area used for outdoor concerts.  Towards the end of 2019, waterfront place is due to open which will be a landscaped area that includes an urban beach (note – this is not a typo).  All shots taken whilst on a boat tour with Pirate Boats Ltd of Dundee on a very grey day.

Musée du Louvre

Here are a few shots of the mighty and hugely impressive Musée du Louvre.  We were lucky enough to be staying opposite, so I had another opportunity for a visit when the sunshine arrived, otherwise the results would have been very dull indeed.  We had a lot of places to visit during our short stay, so we didn’t actually go into the Museum – if the inside is anything like the outside then I  guess you would need a couple of days to fully appreciate the 400,000 or so items of art and historical objects.  Next time, perhaps.
