This is a museum to visit again and again. The recent fashion exhibition was excellent and made an importune and welcome birthday present. There is something for everyone and combined with a visit to their excellent self-service restaurant makes a perfect day out.

It´s quite a lot to see and I hadn´t too much time but what I saw was really nice so I think I have to come back any other time I visit London. The buiding is really great.

The main reason for the trip was a birthday present from my husband who got us tickets for the wedding dress exhibition - and Dita Von Teese's dress - it the 'flesh' and I was not disappointed - it was an amazing exhibition. There was a fee for this (as there are for other special exhibits) but there is so... More

My wife loved the Fashion and Wedding Gown Exhibit--extra. I liked the Chinese art area. We both liked the rooms through the ages, costumes, furnishings by period. Plenty to see here so map out your special interests and when you get lost--and you will--ask a guide. Signs are almost useless. If you have a passion, there is a room of... More

A fantastic collection covering a huge variety of themes and history, you could spend days wandering round. We also visited the 'Disobedient Objects' exhibition which is worth looking round. Great cafe too!

This unplanned visit resulted in me being excited and stimulated, if a little shaken. The (relatively) small, free exhibition had dramatic content, originally made from cheap and available everyday items. The thrust was that anti-establishment protests need icons to be successful at pulling the like-minded together which is what these objects provided. Examples from around the world are modern (in...

Fantastic exhibits, sympathetically displayed to show everything off to their very best - the V&A is one of my favourite places to while away an hour or two. There's almost too much to see in one go, to be honest - I prefer to pick two or three things to see and really immerse myself. Well worth a visit!

Went to the V & A, and never got past the gift shop! They had a great display of hats. We tried them all on, took pictures, giggled and laughed until a guard came & told us to keep it down, or we'd have to leave! One of the most memorable times of my trip to London! The rest of... More
