SO HOW WAS iT?
We asked some of the first visitors to get a glimpse inside the V&A what they thought

The feeling when you come in the door is one of warmth and homeliness. You could sit for hours just relaxing – and that is before you even visit the exhibitions.
ewelina Deptula, 37
I fell in love with the Scottish Design exhibition. You can touch and feel. It is good for kids to see – even simple things like how wellies are designed.
stella Chalmers, 85
It is hard to pick one thing as everything I have seen so far has been fantastic. Even the stairs! The Mackintosh tea rooms were really beautiful.
Brian mCleoD, 60
I am glad to see it all coming together and the buzz that has been created. All very interesting and I look forward to the further exhibitions as they come along.

There are so many nooks and crannies to get lost in. I hadn’t realised how much like a boat the building resembled until we stood outside looking at it.

Amazing. Such a great thing for Dundee and Scotland. I have really enjoyed it - all the different fashion costumes and the tiara really stands out.

It’s a great landmark for the city. I love the little windows where you can see the sea. It is going to be a social and cultural place for the whole world to meet.

The place is buzzing. It’s great to see it filled with people chatting and kids playing. We could go out on the balcony and see across the water to our house.
