Latest plans for bringing the V&A Museum to the QE Olympic Park

The new V&A East will open in 2023. The museum will be on Stratford Waterfront about halfway between the London Stadium and Westfield, northwest of the London Aquatics Centre. The V&A will also have a new research centre at Here East. The huge Smithsonian will be working in partnership with the V&A. The architectural plans for “the Cultural Quarter” had to be reworked. You can read more about this on the V&A website. It’s great that this side of London is now getting the investment it has long deserved.
