Victoria and Albert Museum

About the Victoria and Albert Museum

One of the big museums of London, the V&A is primarily devoted to the arts and fashions.

It houses a large number of galleries, housing everything from interior furniture, to decorations and artwork.

The cast room is famous for its vast plaster cast models of famous international monuments, and a number of originals will be found in the medieval galleries.

Overseas collections are included, mostly from Asia, with some European.

The museum regularly has paid-for large exhibitions as well.
