The world’s first vagina museum will reopen next month with a new exhibition, thanks to a public fundraising drive after it was forced to close for months and relocate.

The museum was forced to shut its east London premises in February this year when its property guardianship came to an end.

After exceeding an £85,000 fundraising target, the museum was able to set up in a new, bigger location on Poyser Street, Bethnal Green, which opens on 4 November. More than 2,500 people donated.
“It was a make or break scenario,” said Zoe Williams, head of communications. “We genuinely didn’t know how successful it would be, especially in the cost of living crisis when so many people in our community are really feeling the pinch … it’s just wonderful.”

The Poyser Street premises will have three gallery spaces. The ground floor gallery will display temporary exhibitions, with Endometriosis: Into the Unknown being the first.

It looks at myths and misconceptions that surround the disease, from the cutting edge of research to the reality of living with the condition.

Williams said: “Ever since we opened, one of the number one things that people have asked for is ‘can you do something about endometriosis?’

The first time I saw this I misread the word "premises" as…something else :oops:
