There's a lot of silence around vaginas and vulvas - too many women won't even use the word when talking to a doctor! With silence comes shame and myths.
Gynaecological heritage is inaccessible to the general public, and the heritage sector is slow to adopt feminist practises
Vaginas are too controversial for most organisations - and they shouldn't be.
The Vagina Museum is a bricks-and-mortar space to celebrate vaginas, vulvas and the gynaecological anatomy and fight stigma through the power of education. Our first exhibition Muff Busters opens in November 2019. The museum is free so it can be accessible to all.
Increased confidence in speaking about the gynaecological anatomy
As of the end of January 2020, the Vagina Museum welcomed 70,000 visitors in its first two months of opening. Feedback has so far been overwhelmingly positive.
