A lovely museum with loads to see FOR FREE it's also located close to the natural history museum.

There is always great exhibits. It obviously had different exhibits that have passed through over the years some of which are paid for. Most occasions it has always been worth the entry fee. One that springs to mind is the Hollywood costumes exhibit a few years back which included the costume worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 mgm wizard of Oz and costumes from Gone with the wind.

They had a particularly good exhibition with musical theatre costumes during 2019 that was free. It was rather good because you could also try costumes on which made it immersive.

Stunning courtyard to have a tea or just sit and admire the beautiful building. Highly recommended.

The V&A is an amazing museum. The diversity of the collection and the space itself is wonderful. I spent four hours there one day visiting all the floors and even then I knew I had not come close to seeing all it had to offer. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The collection is diverse enough that there is some thing for everyone and every age.

This truly is one of Londons Gems.

I have visited the V&A regularly since I was a fashion student in London 20 years ago. It really is the most magical place. From then to now they constantly curate the most exciting and considered exhibits , especially when looking at costume and fashion, from Armani and Westwood through to the infamous McQueen & Bowie exhibits, through to the current Tim Walker, all have been utterly captivating with the curation and environment in which these stores are told transporting you some where else entirely.

Its best to book in advance however as the exhibitions are popular with strict times allocated, so its best to book in advance, especially if you're travelling from further away.

Additionally there are thousands of beautifully curated free exhibits displayed and available for you to walk around at your own pace within the permanent collections and all are very much worth your time.

Incredible building inside and out starts the visit off brilliantly. Interesting and varied collections with lots of interesting information for each piece. A wonderful way to spend a few hours (and more if you had it available)

I had meant to visit the VA on numerous occasions but had never seemed to have enough time . On our recent trip we made visiting a priority and we had an excellent time , although as the title says I could have stayed for much longer had prior arrangements not curtailed our free time . In the time we had available we managed to see most of the exhibition halls and there are many varied and wonderful treasures to see . The museum gets a big tick from me as it is free entrance which I think all museums should be . why should it only be people with money who get to enjoy all the fantastic objects on display ... in saying that there was also stand alone exhibitions such as one about Mary quant which has an entrance charge for those who may have a specific interest .however the rest is free . There are a number of floors and they all deserve to be investigated . A particular highlight for me was the snuff boxes and miniature portrait paintings but I’m sure there is something that will capture every visitors eye .. well worth a visit , I will return and spend the whole day there
