About the Museum
V&A East will open in 2023.
The V&A East project will connect two new sites together – a museum at the Stratford Waterfront and a new collection and research center at Here East – both located in Olympic Park. It is planned to open in 2023, and represents a partnership between the V&A and the Smithsonian.
This will be put on display at the waterfront space, which will deliver an innovative exhibition program and a jointly-curated gallery at the Waterfront, bridging art, design, science and the humanities, and deploying the collections of two world-renowned cultural institutions to reflect issues and themes that resonate with contemporary society. Here East will focus on a behind the scenes view of how art is made, cared for, researched and displayed. An open floor storage unit, thousands of objects will be displayed.
