The V&A is in discussion with the University of Dundee, University of Abertay, Dundee City Council and the Scottish Government with a view to opening a new £43 million gallery in Dundee that would use the V&A brand although it would be funded through and operated independently.
The V&A is one of 17 museums across Europe and the Mediterranean participating in a project called Discover Islamic Art.
Victoria and Albert Museum's came second to the London's top paid exhibitions in 2015 with the record-breaking Alexander Mc Queen show (3,472 a day).This led to the transfer to the museum of the School of Design that had been founded in 1837 at Somerset House; after the transfer it was referred to as the Art School or Art Training School, later to become the Royal College of Art which finally achieved full independence in 1949.From the 1860s to the 1880s the scientific collections had been moved from the main museum site to various improvised galleries to the west of Exhibition Road.This is to ensure that the exhibits are better displayed, more information is available and the museum meets modern expectations for museum facilities; it should take about ten years to complete the work.
A new entrance, courtyard and gallery designed by Amanda Levete's AL A was scheduled for opening in 2017.
New 17th- and 18th-century European galleries were opened on 9 December 2015.
