The Victoria and Albert Museum is the largest museum of the decorative arts in the world. It was founded in 1852 as the South Kensington Museum, but was renamed the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1899, in honour of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Today, the beautiful Victorian and Edwardian buildings house 145 galleries containing some of the world's greatest collections of sculpture, furniture, fashion and textiles, paintings, silver, glass, ceramics, jewellery, books, prints and photographs.

The V&A has a programme of charging exhibitions running throughout the year. This programme complements the Museum's permanent collection and covers a broad range of subjects from design and fashion to photography and architecture.

Surf the V & A website for comprehensive information on the museum and its permanent and temporary exhibitions. There are also links to the associated museums, including the Museum of Childhood, Theatre Museum and Apsley House. http://www.vam.ac.uk/
