The V&A is likely to have a wing dedicated to whatever floats your art and design boat, as well as a brilliant selection of rotating special exhibitions. The building itself is gorgeous, with a courtyard made for contemplating the fabulous-ness of your life and tired-ness of your feet. Like most museums in London, it's also free.

A very nice museum. Probably not a must see, but if you have some time and are into history it is a nice way to spend the afternoon.

You could spend your entire vacation there. Or even your holiday. And it's close to the other stuff you want to see in the West End. Rated #3 on the list of London museums.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is one of the world's largest museums for decorative arts and design. There is so much to see, you could not possible see even half in an entire day. There are traditional art works such as paintings and sculpture, crafts such as glass and pottery, functional man made objects such as arrowheads and they range from ancient objects to modern.

One of London's great museums, though it is a bit further out of the way than other great places like the National Gallery. A wonderful permanent collection of exhibits, but be sure to watch out for the remarkable exhibitions!

Wow! I didn't have high expectations but this place was incredible! It was massive!!! With a huge courtyard in the center. The collection was one of the most impressive I have ever seen. They had everything from silver to fabrics from all around the world and through out time. Really amazing!

So much to see, so little time! They basically had to kick me out with the flickering lights. A huge collection of artifacts from all over the world. Highlights for me include the cast room (plaster casts of some of the most famous architecture in Europe, as in an entire room filled with facades of buildings and statues) as well as the fashion exhibit. I wish I had more time! Oh and the gift shop was very nice as well.

On the last Friday of every month, the V&A has a late night opening. Think cocktails and champagne in the grand hall area, music, special exhibits and other fun things. A mix of the after-work crowd and families, these evenings are relaxed and enjoyable (being in a museum suddenly makes drinking a virtuous activity :-P). There's a huge outdoor courtyard with a fountain, which is amazing to make use of in the Summer.Recommended for:Family Travelers

Dedicated to art & design, the V&A impresses on arrival with its beautiful architecture, and that's before you wander through wings dedicated to ceramics, architecture, fashion, and glass, among many, many more.
