V&A has it all. I can return again and again and still find something new. Great place to stroll to after a necessary 'Harrods' fix

Highly recommended and great for children too: - 1) the entrance is free 2) once you go in, you can go to a couple of exhibits you all might be interested in seeing and then 3) go to the beautiful courtyard, where on a nice day the kids can wade in the fountain! and then 4) have lunch in the...

Had planned a visit to the Natural History Museum on Easter Saturday but the queue ran around the block so decided to visit the V&A instead. With 2 adults & 3 children aged 14, 10 and 7 we needed to find something for everyone. I know it was busy and the heavy rain probably meant even more visitors but there... More

This is a great place to visit.I love to look at the jewellery and the theatre exhibition. Here you can try on different costumes, the whole family can get dresses up. There are so many different galleries worth a close look. There is an amazing collection of silver. Visit the cafe and take your tea into the William Morris rooms.... More

The V&A is an outstanding museum with beautifully-displayed collections supported by good information. The current exhibition about William Kent is superb. Probably a specialised interest, but for anyone who likes eighteenth-century architecture, interior design and gardening this is a quiet, absorbing, delight. Wonderful to see Kent's original sketches, some well-known from reproductions in books but others an intriguing surprise. These... More

Love this museum. Excellent exhibits and the special exhibits are always very well worked and enjoyable. It was only a shame tickets for Bowie were so hard to come by.

We were staying at a hotel nearby and had always intended to visit the museum some time. The exhibits are so varied and not everything can be seen in one day. I can see some children losing interest after a while and wasting to visit the more exiting sights in London. But it's a great place to catch up with... More

It's been a while since going, but I loved the special exhibitions. Went with my teenage cousin who's studying art and she got a lot of inspiration from the variety in the V&A.

Our first visit to the V & A and we were staggered by the sheer quantity of exhibits. A fantastic place, but do not go there expecting to see the entire collection in a few hours. As another reviewer has remarked, it's probably best to target one or two areas each visit.
