All good things must come to an end– even the world’s only Vagina Museum. London’s Vagina Museum, located at ENTER in Victoria Park Square, Bethnal Green, has received notice to vacate the premises.
This isn’t the first time the Vagina Museum has been displaced. It originally opened in Camden Market in 2019, but was forced to close in September 2021 after its landlord declined to renew its lease.
The vaginas were homeless until they found their new site in Bethnal Green, which the museum has occupied under a property guardianship since March 2022. Because the Vagina Museum is a property guardianship, it has always been a possibility that they could be asked to leave with little notice.
Sad news. We’ve received notice to vacate our premises at Bethnal Green by the end of this week. As a property guardianship, we’ve always been aware that we may be asked to leave with very short notice. We’re disappointed that it has come so soon.

Luckily, vaginas are resilient. The Vagina Museum will continue to operate in the digital world as they search for a new home.
