The V&A opened its doors in 1852 and was originally a Museum of Manufactures. Since then it has become the world’s leading museum of art and design, the museum has not stopped evolving since and its collections span over 5000 years of human creativity in practically every medium available to man. The V&A houses over 2.8 million objects, books and archives and holds many of the UK's national collections and houses some of the greatest resources for the study of architecture, furniture, fashion, textiles, photography, sculpture, painting, jewellery, glass, ceramics, book arts, Asian art and design, theatre and performance.
As well as being educational the V&A is there to let anyone explore the depths of art in all of its forms and to inspire the next generation of artists.
