Explore the The V&A Museum on your university or college trip to London.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is arguably the world's largest and grandest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million artefacts.

Named after Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, it was founded in 1852 and has since grown to cover 12.5 acres and 145 galleries. Its collection spans 5,000 years of art, from ancient times to the present day. Whether it's ancient Chinese ceramics or Alexander McQueen evening dresses, visitors can take an vivid journey through 5000 years of human creativity. 

In addition to the permanent collections, the changing programme of exhibitions ensures that art and design student groups will always discover something new. Admission to the museum is free.
