  • This Museum is amazing, it's an art gallery, architectural junk yard, collectors paradise. A big space, with a whole series of galleries with a real eclectic mixture, from absolutely huge plaster cast ornate columns, to the tiniest of ear rings. There's something to amaze or captivate. Easy to find, and FREE, a whole day out for the curious.
  • Wonderful art museum. The story goes that everything in the British Museum was taken from across the empire, the V&A museum is filled with artifacts willingly given. There's a wide variety of sculpture, costumes, paintings, etc. Absolutely worth a visit.
  • Amazing museum with an enormous, if sometimes overwhelming, collection of classic art. I would compare this place to the Met (Metropolitan Art Museum in NYC), while the Tate Modern would be like MoMa (Museum of Modern Art in NYC). Truly beautiful sculptures, statues, clothing, artifacts, paintings, glass work, installations, and important historical items. You could easily come here once a week for years and see new things each time so if you are just visiting for a day be sure to give yourself at least the whole afternoon. Cafeteria in the basement is ok but not anything special.
  • One museum Im gonna miss so much! I like the environment and the friendly staffs. The collections are neatly displayed and organized. Get the map while donating a min of 1£ (trust me, worth it). There are a few quiet study area open for public. Entry is free except for special exhibition. On friday opens until later but only the part of the -1 floor, 0 floor and special exhibition. Focus on art collections, sculptures, paintings, costumes, furnitures, metal work, architecture, ceramics. Non member can leave coat or small bag at coat counters for 1£. Bigger bags or luggage bags is 2£ to 4£.
  • A must visit. Dont miss the beautifully designed café rooms. They often have free lgbt tours of the collection on saturdays.
