The World’s First Vagina Museum Is Set to Open in London

Be the firsts to say hello to the vaginas in the world’s first Vagina Museum!

Yup, you read that right! Following a successful £50,000 crowdfunding campaign, the world’s first-ever Vagina Museum is set to open its doors in London. 

Opening temporarily in Camden Market on November 16, the exhibition will be titled “Muff Busters: Vagina Myths and How to Fight Them”. Billing itself as the “world’s first brick-and-mortar vagina museum”, the museum will educate its visitors more about vulvas and vaginas, while challenging prevailing myths and stigmas surrounding them.

The concept for the Vagina Museum was first developed after founder Florence Schecter discovered that Iceland had a museum dedicated to penises.

With Iceland’s Phallological Museum displaying hundreds of animal penises, Schecter felt that it was only fair that female genitals got their share of the spotlight.

This museum will feature everything from science and history to vulva cupcakes and ‘vagacchina’ coffees – with the aim of making visitors more comfortable with the topic. Finally (or rather hopefully) men will shrivel at the mention of ‘periods’ no more! 

All jokes aside, the ultimate goal of the museum is to create an educational shrine to vaginas, vulvas and the broader gynaecological anatomy. Menstruation is unfortunately still a taboo in many countries – and the Vagina Museum hopes to eradicate that taboo, one small step at a time.

So if you’re in the area, be sure to bring your boyfriends and all your male friends… it’s time to educate the men!

The Vagina Museum will open in London’s Camden Market on November 16. For more information, visit their website here.
