There is something for everyone at this museum which is steeped in history as befits the name "Victoria and Albert. Beautiful food court centre piece of whih is a beautiful fountain with grassy area and plenty of seating and good quality food. Excellent exhibitions from fashion designers to famous artists. An absolute must to visit and my favourite museum in London.

Founded in 1852, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is the world's largest museum of applied and decorative arts and design, as well as sculpture, housing a permanent collection of over 2.27 million objects and it is 5 stories high. It was another July 2019 rainy day and this place was near where I was staying along with being on the London Pass. I wish I would have known how massive this place was and how easily you can get lost it in. Check out a map before you go. I really enjoyed the statues, jewelry, Beatrice Potter artwork, and more.

I've visited the V&A several times, most recently for the Dior exhibit, and it never fails. The exhibits are fabulous, and more varied than most art museums. I just love the collection of jewelry and the small exhibit on the West End. Also, the collection of famous casts is so unique. You'll never get this close to Michelangelo's David in Italy! An absolute must-see when in London. Save time to walk around the neighborhood and grab food at the numerous restaurants by the South Kensington tube stop.

The holy trinity of all museums. The V&A, Natural History and the Science Museum. Not in particular order but in one place. Named after the Royal love birds and power couple of arts & culture, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. In fact the whole area is littered with their legacy. There's Royal Albert Hall, Albert Memorial, Imperial College and God knows what else. It's really a bad idea to to give yourself overdose and kill three birds with one stone (see all three in one visit) unless you're in London for a day or so otherwise you'll neither be doing justice to these wonderful places nor to yourself. Just to give you an idea in a nutshell that what this beautiful building holds inside, There are sculptures, textiles, photography, paintings, jewelry, fashion, music instruments, poetry, metalwork, woodwork, furniture, books, architecture and my personal favorite, ceramic and glass section. One lifetime is not enough to see all that.
