Named for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the V&A Museum is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design. With four departments (Asia; Furniture, Textiles and Fashion; Sculpture, Metalwork, Ceramics & Glass; and Word & Image) and 4.5 million objects in virtually every medium, the collection is surely a comprehensive and eclectic one. Spend an afternoon with the costume collection to study the changing tides of fashion among 13,000 outfits dating from 1600 to present, or be dazzled by the equally impressive collection of jewels. Afterwards, kids and adults alike will appreciate the chance to unwind in the recently re-designed garden, where they can admire the museum’s distinctive architecture or just play a game of tag.
