World’s first Vagina Museum

Florence Schechter will open the first-ever Vagina Museum in the United Kingdom next fall.

“I found out there is a penis museum in Iceland, which is pretty cool,” she explained. “But there was no vagina equivalent anywhere in the world.

“There’s this art gallery in Tasmania, and there’s a virtual museum based in Austria. But there was no physical museum that I could go visit, and I thought that was really unfair. So, I was like, ‘Well, I guess I’m just making one now.’ And ours is going to be a bit different. Ours is going to have exhibitions about science, history, the social aspect of it.”

Briefly saying, the Vagina Museum will be an exhibition of gynecological studies. The goal of this project is destigmatizing of the female genitalia.

“No. 1 is that vaginas are normal and nothing to be ashamed of. It’s a hugely stigmatized part of the body and that leads to some really awful, real-world consequences,” the founder says.

The first physical museum of vaginas will be located in Camden Market. Camden Council Georgia Gould stated: “Camden has a proud and radical history of challenging prejudice and orthodoxy, however, we acknowledge that the stigma associated with talking about gynaecological health has meant ignorance, confusion, shame, and poor medical care for too many.”

She added: “We are therefore incredibly excited that the Vagina Museum is seeking to establish in Camden, and hope that it is funded to provide an inclusive and intersectional centre for learning, creativity, activism and outreach that will add immeasurably to our collective understanding of our bodies.”

The mission of the museum is written on their official website. Here are some of the ideas:

  • Spread knowledge and raise awareness of gynecological anatomy and health;
  • Give confidence to people to talk about issues surrounding the gynecological anatomy;
  • Erase the stigma around the body and gynecological anatomy;
  • Promote intersectional, feminist and trans-inclusive values.
