victoria & albert museum (london)

On Wednesday afternoon, my sister and I visited the Victoria & Albert Museum in South Kensington. The Victoria and Albert Museum (often abbreviated as the V&A), is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects. Named after Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, it was founded in 1852, and has since grown include 145 galleries and a collection that spans 5,000 years of art.

Here are a few photographs I took of the museums’ collections,  including the photography gallery and the 20th century galleries…

I spotted a Barbara Kruger shopping bag…

And a Vivienne Westwood nipple t-shirt…

And the architecture of the building was just beautiful. Here are a few photographs of the courtyard…

The V&A South Kensington can be found at Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL. Check the website for opening times, booking tickets and an overview of the collections and visiting exhibitions.
