The world’s leading museum of art, design and performance.

The V&A is the UK’s national museum of art and design, and is one of the world’s greatest museums. The collection spans the cultures from Europe to Asia, from ancient times to the present day and includes ceramics, furniture, fashion, glass, jewellery, metalwork, photographs, prints, sculpture, textiles and paintings.

Ever since the Great Exhibition of 1851 when the museum was founded with a vision to inspire and educate the designers and makers of the future, its collection has continued to delight, inspire and engage audiences from all over the world.
