Lots of great art work and fashion to look at. Not too busy so easy to get around. Don't think they should charge for the wedding dress exhibition - not sure how much it was as we didn't think it would be worth queuing and paying for. Food and drinks are expensive. The Raphael cartoons and tapestry are superb and... More

Fantastic place, so much to see that you will need to re visit. The wedding dress exhibition was very interesting. Plan your route so you don't keep doubling back on yourself. The building itself is absolutely stunning. Will be going back that's for sure.

We popped in quickly as the kids wanted to look at some art before we headed home. This is a museum that I would not mind paying to visit. The plaster casts are stunning and having recently returned from Rome it was great to see some up close.Fantastic couple of hours spent wandering around.

I love this museum! We went to see the Disobedient Objects exhibition. It was very thought provoking experience. The V&A allows the visiter to step through history in a stunning venue.

There are so many artefacts here it is impossible to see everything in one visit. Spent an afternoon here and only saw one floor but the exhibits are fascinating and wonderous from thousands of years ago. Plen your visit and if you want to go to the dress exhibition go early as tickets had sold out on our visit

Have not been here for probably about 20 years! What a fabulous museum, my 5 year old loved it, the sculptures and the part where she got to make her own photographic film roll. The museum itself is beautiful with stunning outdoor grounds and a lovely cafe. Cannot wait to go back and see the rest we didn't have time... More

Look out for touring exhibitions and for the free guided tours of the building and collections. Well worth the effort and a great restaurant catering for all tastes...love the pianist whilst you eat. Great touch

if you don't visit the expositions in witch you need to pay, is too big and dispersive. But I think is the problem of the big and old museums like Louvre, National Gallery and so on. If you just come in London to visit is ok, but f you live here, take your time and visit other museums first.

A must see place. There is no entry fee except for selected sections like the wedding dresses. Depending upon your taste you may spend a day or a few hours. Spending just one hour will give a full feeling of the place and you can take some good photographs.
