The Vagina Museum is a project to create the world's first bricks and mortar museum about the gynaecological anatomy. The project to create the Vagina Museum was launched when the founder, Florence Schechter, discovered there was a penis museum in Iceland, the Icelandic Phallological Museum , but there was no equivalent for the vagina or vulva. The Museum's first event, a comedy fundraiser, was held on 19 May headlined by Hayley Ellis. The Museum held its first exhibition in August in Scotland. The permanent museum will have exhibitions on the gynaecological anatomy from science to art to culture.

The founders of the Vagina Museum want to get women talking about their vaginas. In keeping with its mission to break down taboos, it founders are crowd-funding by promising supporters the chance to win crocheted clitorises in exchange for donations. The founders believe it's time for a museum dedicated to vaginas after learning in about the existence of one dedicated to penises. Disco parties, comedy nights, school tours and art exhibitions may be unusual ways to help break the stigma associated with female genitals. But the founders hope that offering a fascinating museum featuring everything science and history to vulva cupcakes and 'vagacchino' coffees will make visitors feel more comfortable with the important topic.

I had tried to avoid it for a long time….. I think that television special really impacted me as I actively avoided cannabis for a while. But then one night, I gave in — I was hanging with the crew of older guys in a parking lot, ahead of a Planet Smashers a Canadian ska band show.
Founder Florence Schechter launched a crowdfunding campaign on Friday urging the public to make donations that will go towards organising exhibitions, comedy nights and performers at the innovative cultural site. The Vagina Museum first launched as a pop-up project in March While there is currently a virtual vagina museum in Austria, this would be the first physical museum dedicated to female genitalia. Schechter added that the museum will also host an outreach programme in which she hopes to work with sex and relationships educators and medical professionals to provide better services and support to transgender and intersex communities.
