First vagina museum to open in London in November

The first vagina museum in the world will open in London in November. 

In an interview with CNN, development and marketing manager Zoe Williams said The Vagina Museum will educate visitors about vaginas while challenging the prevailing stigma surrounding them.

“As this is the world’s first bricks-and-mortar museum dedicated to vaginas, vulvas and the gynecological anatomy, we didn’t quite know what to expect in terms of interest, and were delighted with the £50,000 we raised,” Williams said.

Founder Florence Schechter developed the concept for the museum after finding out that there was a museum dedicated to penises in Iceland but no counterpart for vaginas.

Schechter and her team launched a campaign on Crowdfunder where they raised almost £50,000 (about $62,000).

The museum will open on Nov. 16 in London’s Camden Market, with an exhibition entitled “Muff Busters: Vagina Myths and How to Fight Them.”

“We want to give everyone the confidence to talk about a perfectly normal part of the anatomy,” Williams said.

“There’s nothing shameful or offensive about vulvas and vaginas. They’re a part of the body that should be celebrated!”
