The World’s First Vagina Museum Is Coming To London, But It Needs Your Help

vag-feature

When funded, it’s set to be the world’s first bricks and mortar vagina museum.

So, there happens to be a penis museum in Iceland, but what about the vagina? Well, Florence Schecter set out rectify this problem (and obvious gap in the museum market) two years ago, by creating her own right here in London. And now, the project is in its final stages, with one last crowdfunding push needed to get it across the line.

The Vagina Museum will hopefully be opening in the heart of Camden Market, and plans to take a holistic view of vaginas; the people and animals that have them, whilst highlighting cultural issues surrounding them too. The concept is all about educating everyone on topical issues such as FGM, the basic science of the vagina, and basically showing everyone how fab it generally is. Sounds great, but what’s even better is that the museum plans on bringing free collections and exhibitions, paid evening events, and community outreach opportunities too.

Expect to be educated on the science, culture and history of the trusty vagina whilst simultaneously going to concerts, workshops, comedy nights and plays. Who knew the vagina could be so arty?

So, that’s what The Vagina Museum is offering – but now, it needs your help. They’re aiming to raise £300,000 to cover rent, exhibitions and outreach costs, and staffing costs (they’re also going to pay above the London Living Wage, so massive props to them for that). Any place that states they’ll have vagina cupcakes and a gift shop with vagina merchandise has already won us over!

There are a whole host of reward packages for supporting the project, including memberships, private tours, and getting your name up on the wall of the museum. Donate and keep up to date with the project here – and keep your fingers crossed they hit their goal!
