During the lockdown, the huge Raphael Cartoons which are on display in a dedicated gallery within the V&A were given a rare refurbishment.
The big three – the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and the V&A Museum have all announced the dates they will reopen following the lockdown.
The UK’s only known example of a late Medieval jewelled cluster brooch, discovered by a metal detectorist in 2017 has gone on display in the V&A Museum.
This year marks the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, and oddly, the V&A has decided to close it’s Raphael Court for most of the year.
A corridor in the V&A Museum is lined with small pencil drawings, showing a young Beatrix Potter experimenting with the ideas which would form her later books.
In this the 200th anniversary of the births of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the V&A museum has put Queen Victoria’s famous coronet on display after it was saved from being sold overseas.
