V&A Dundee has revealed 830,000 people visited the museum in its first year — over 300,000 higher than originally predicted.
A series of events are being held this weekend to celebrate the one-year anniversary following its opening in September last year.
The £80 million museum is estimated to have had an economic impact of £23 million across Scotland in its first year.
Scotland’s first design museum sits at the centre of the Dundee waterfront, an ambitious 30-year, £1 billion regeneration project which began in 2001.
Philip Long, director of V&A Dundee, said: “The last 12 months have been remarkable and I can hardly believe all that’s been achieved in that time.
“As well as welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors and putting on world-class exhibitions championing Scottish and international design, the museum has really become part of the city, and for that I’d like to thank everyone for their support.
“We’re very proud of the contribution we have already made to Dundee and Scotland, and the opportunities we are generating for our nation’s creative talent, such as our current exhibition of work by the brilliant young fashion designer Nicholas Daley.
“We look forward to welcoming many more visitors to our upcoming major exhibitions Hello, Robot and Mary Quant.”
Tim Allan, chair of the board of V&A Dundee, said: “V&A Dundee has already proven itself to be a major new international attraction, bringing tourists from around the world to Dundee to spend time and money, supporting local businesses.
“In turn, this is already encouraging new investment and job creation.
“The 30-year waterfront vision outlined in 2001 is clearly ahead of target and I look forward to seeing many more companies investing in Dundee in the next decade.”
V&A Dundee’s opening last year marked over ten years of planning and preparation, including the design of Kengo Kuma’s remarkable new building, major conservation projects including Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Oak Room, and a wide range of new commissions and learning projects.
