Victoria and Albert Museum

Often referred to just as the V&A, the Victoria and Albert Museum is thought to be the largest museum of decorative arts and design in the world. Its permanent collection spans over an extensive 5,000 year period.

Featuring displays from contemporary and historic cultures found all over the world, the V&A provides visitors with a unique overview of the history of art and design. In addition to the museum’s main collection, visitors can expect to find temporary exhibits on all manner of things from video game design to contemporary photography.

Established in 1852, the V&A is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture. The institution was initially known as the Museum of Manufactures.
