Victoria and Albert Museum in London and its exhibitions

The Victoria and Albert Museum (often referred to by its abbreviations V&A), is considered the largest museum of decorative arts in the world and its building itself is already considered a true work of art.

In this museum, founded in 1852 under the name of South Kensington Museum, we can find a large collection of art and design from all over the world.

It was in 1899 when it acquired its current name in honor of Queen Victoria and her husband Albert.

The exhibitions of the Victoria and Albert Museum

London - Victoria and Albert MuseumIn the huge Victoria and Albert Museum we can find more than 4 million objects spread over seven floors and occupying no less than 45,000 square meters.

In these 7 floors of this great Victorian building, the objects are divided into five categories: Europe, Asia, materials and techniques, modern objects and exhibitions.

Among the objects that we can find in the Victoria and Albert Museum, which survived the Second World War, we can find sculptures, among which those of the Renaissance stand out and especially Donatello’s Ascension.

We can also find ceramics and glass, jewelry, furniture and decoration, textiles and costumes, Indian art, art from the Far East and a large collection of photographs, prints and drawings.

The museum is too big to see in a single visit, so we recommend that if you don’t have enough time, you focus on what interests you the most or simply enjoy all the objects in this immense museum as you go.
