Victoria And Albert Museum
The Victoria and Albert Museum is the world’s greatest museum of art and design. It was established in 1852 to make works of art available to all and to inspire British designers and manufacturers. It gained its current name in 1899 when Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone of a new wing and renamed the Museum in memory of her husband, Prince Albert.
With a collection of over 2.7 millions objects, the V&A represents over three thousand years of human creativity from all over the world. Galleries span over seven levels and include spectacular ceramics, furniture, fashion, glass, jewellery, metalwork, sculpture, textiles and paintings.
The Museum is now undergoing a dramatic programme of renewal and restoration, revitalizing visitor facilities and redisplaying the collections. Highlights include the British Galleries 1500-1900, the Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art, the William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery and the magnificent John Madejski Garden.
