The Victoria and Albert Museum, lovingly referred to as the V& A, is an absolute must see while you are in London. One could say that a trip to the V&A is like taking a trip around the world while staying in London. They have a massive collection of item from priceless sliver to ancient artifacts from the far corners of the globe. We have been to the museum many times and are in awe every time we go. You could easily spend a day going through this large museum. There is sure to be something to interest everyone at the V&A. Also be sure to check out their special exhibits. We have seen several and they’ve never disappointed. If you do want to see a special exhibit make sure to buy your tickets in advance. While general admission is free, special exhibitions do cost. We also recommend going early in the day and on weekdays, as the museum is generally less crowded.
