  • This museum has full of wonders of decorative arts which was gathered from the world. It has a big collection of Iranian artefact which was taken from my home country. Also it has lovely collection of glass works and other artistic stuff. I recommend this place who would love the learn the history of art.
  • Fabulous museum collection with well-curated exhibitions. The permanent collection is free to the public but is absolutely priceless. The temporary exhibitions come with a entry fee -- around 13-22L (what most Americans are used to paying for full museum entry, special exhibitions included) but are totally worth the hefty price tag. For those visiting before the end of 2016, be sure to see "You Say You Want a Revolution" -- one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of the cultural climate of the 1960s I've seen.
  • Gorgeous cafe area for a quick snack. Amazing collections of stuff - has a bit of everything like grandma's attic. And the tour I took was fabulous - it highlighted one piece of every type of material. Then get something in the museum gift shop!
  • Eclectic and superlative permanent collections, lauded temporary exhibitions and innovative leadership assure this institution's authority, deserved reputation and pre-eminence. So best enjoy the very best of what Britain does best.
  • I've been in art museums all over Europe - Paris, Moscow, Vienna, Lisbon, Madrid - all the big and famous ones, but nothing beats Victoria and Albert Museum for me. The museum covers all aspects of art - from Architecture to Fashion to Icons and Sacred Images to Sculpture and everything in-between. Just last week, on my maybe 20th visit, I stumbled across the Theatre and Film Design Rooms. Their temporary exhibitions are also a must visit, and the tickets are not that expensive as well. Make sure to check the Jewellery rooms as well, stunning collection of the finest of British and International goldsmiths makes.
