My Trip to the Vagina Museum
It was a Saturday and I had no plans so I thought what should I do? Of course I decided to go the Vagina Museum. It’s free and currently residing in Camden, plus it’s amazing.
What started as a pop-up now has a semi-permanent residence just off Camden Lock. They’re looking to get a permanent museum in the next few years, but for now I would highly recommend heading to Camden to check it out.
The ‘museum’ is just one room and it is a gallery and a museum in one.
It’s free to enter and is wonderfully placed in Camden market so you can go straight in for a ton of information on vaginas and female anatomy, and then head out to Asian Alley for some free salt and pepper chicken.
You only need to spend about 20 minutes in the museum to read the boards and take lots of photos. Then you can hang out in the shop and load up on postcards, pins, stickers and books.
The current exhibition which runs until March 2020 is the Muff Busters: Vagina Myths and How to Fight Them.
Each board of the museum focuses on a different myth that is commonly associated with vaginas and the female anatomy and breaks it down from origin to reason why they’re myths in the first place. Nearly all of the research was completed by the Eve Appeal of 2019.
There was a board on the clitoris, another board on penetrative sex and pregnancy and also one on douching with coca-cola. Yep, coke does not stop pregnancy although they promoted this wonderfully marketable myth in the 1950s and 1960s.
I think this was my favourite board. Conclusion – don’t put Coke in your vagina!
This is a great place to visit whenever you’re next in London. It’s well located, easy to get to and completely free. Check it out, next time you’re in the city.
