the wedding dress exhibition was fabulous! The price of admission also gets you in to see all the usual exhibitions that are permanently housed. Go early--the queue can be quite long at times. Don't miss the outdoor area around the water feature in the courtyard. A perfect place to bring children for a picnic as well.

Need a plan and study it. Museum is so rich and overwhelming that is easy to miss so much. It's an all day journey venture. Well worth the time. Do not miss this gem

If you like pottery then the V&A is well worth a visit. There is just so much to see! We did not pay extra to go to any of the exhibitions however there is no need to as there is still so much to see. The lifts are very handy if you have mobility problems as there are many floors... More

Five floors of artifacts. It can be overwhelming and confusing. Good news is it's free and you can stay as long or as little as you wish. My wife and daughter enjoyed the fashions and I enjoyed the replica of Trajan's column amongst other massive replicas. Too much to see. Just take in what you wish and enjoy. The Natural... More
