Don't miss Disobedient Objects, a thoughtful exhibtiion on right now, plus the beautiful textiles in the regular collection. Lunch is very good, in beautful rooms. The V&A is must-do for anyone visiting London.

A brilliant treasure trove - there is so much to it. I recommend picking one exhibition and focusing on that and doing a bit of research online before visiting to make sure you do get to see what you want before getting too tired. Highly recommended

So many well-done exhibits and the iron exhibit had so many different pieces - a huge installment. Also enjoyed the William Morris exhibit very much. Everyone can find something here to enjoy!

the amazing collection of artwork as well as more "normal" objects really give the sensation of the era they represent, very skillfully put together and maintained

It´s a museum that covers from classic arts to modern design, in a lovely building right in front of Science Museum and really close to Natural History Museum.

Central location, parking nearby, children interested too, and food! Liked the ambience but the catering needs some serious re-organisation!! Queuing by a door with freezing wind and hot? food waiting to pay?? Well, really....

Went to have a look at the fashion display which didn't disappoint. The cafe produces interesting,varied and well presented lunchtime food although I feel it is a little pricey. Very pleasant choice of cakes. The staff are professional and friendly.
