The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is unquestionably the world’s greatest museum of art and design, with more than 3,000 years of artefacts from many of the globe’s richest cultures. The inspiring exhibitions and displays feature furniture, ceramics, fashion, glass, jewellery, metalwork, sculpture, textiles and paintings. In recent years, the museum has undergone a dramatic programme of renewal and restoration. Highlights include the new Dr. Susan Weber Furniture Gallery, the Fashion Gallery, the William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery, the British Galleries 1500-1900, the Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art and the magnificent John Madejski Garden.
