Not spectacular. Italian fashion exhibit had an extra cost, volunteers in exhibits did not greet or interact with visitors.

I've visited here several times over the years and every time I find something new here. This visit I also paid to visit the Italian fashion exhibition but the main museum has so much to see and it's free! But if you can afford it, make a donation to help keep this fantastic museum going. And would highly recommend lunch... More

This is a must see while in London! First of all, the scale of this place...you'll need AT LEAST a full day. The galleries, starting with the Renaissance were breathtaking. Statues, illuminated manuscripts, audio and video and docents that were eager to answer anything you might want to know. I went today expecting something great...it was so, so much more... More

Just a lovely place to visit if you have three hours to spare. Lots of space to explore each section and floor with rooms allocated to various parts of the world. Food is ok but seating seemed to be fairly limited in the main eating area. I would suggest you take your own sandwiches and eat then in the central... More

This museum is wonderful and has so much to offer. We could have spent a week in here, but would have been over stimulated. They have many, many wonderful exhibits. We particularly enjoyed see King Henry VIII's bed again.

The museum if often crowded especially at weekends and school holidays. However, it is free although most people do give a donation in the relevant box. Although there is often a long line to the entrance due to security checks it isn't usually a long wait. There is plenty to see both for younger ones and teens and of course... More

This is a venue that has everything for anyone who is interesting in history in any area of their interest. The V&A just has something for every visitor and you probable need three months to see everything. It is a place that you can visit on many occasions and never seem the same thing. There are different shows and exhibitions... More

Yes, of course, this is a splendid museum: filled to the brim with a fascinating range of fine and decorative art, and showcasing terrific exhibits (don't miss the Italian Fashion exhibit currently on display). But, just in case you're at a loss for somewhere to shop for artist-made gifts that are fairly priced, the V&A Shop may be the place.... More

Went in this time to appreciate the building rather than the exhibits! Really impressive and of course free.
