The Victoria Albert and Museum spans across 5,000 years of human life right through to the present day, telling the story of art and design through the centuries.

The museum is named after Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, and was opened in 1852, ten years before his passing. Known simply as ‘the V&A’ it was built to promote the history of design, seeking influence and inspiration from all around the world.
