Victoria and Albert Museum Tours

Victoria and Albert Museum
The Victoria and Albert Museum houses more than 2.3 million cultural artifacts from around the globe, spanning over 5,000 years. Explore the museum’s world-famous collections of Asian art and postclassical sculpture, attend a family-friendly drop-in session, or discover work by masters such as Raphael, John Constable, and William Morris.

The Basics
Many opt to visit the V&A, located on the same street as the Science Museum and Natural History Museum, as part of a wider exploration of the South Kensington neighborhood. For those looking for a more intimate experience of the world-famous collection, a private tour provides personalized insights. If you’re particularly interested in one area, thematic tours are also available, while families with kids can benefit from tours specifically designed for children.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The V&A is a must-see for culture vultures and history buffs.
  • Entrance to the museum is free, though some exhibitions carry a charge.
  • The museum is fully accessible to visitors with mobility and/or hearing impairments, though be aware that the tunnel entrance from South Kensington station is not step-free.
  • The museum has a dedicated stroller-storage area and is breastfeeding-friendly.

How to Get There
The the Victoria and Albert Museum is located on Cromwell Road in the South Kensington neighborhood of London. To get there by public transit, take the underground to South Kensington, which has direct tunnel access to the museum. Alternatively, the 52 and C1 buses from London Victoria stop nearby.

When to Get There
The Victoria and Albert Museum is extremely popular and can become crowded, especially during peak summer months. For a more peaceful visit, aim to arrive first thing in the morning on weekend days or in the late afternoon during the week, or take advantage of extended open hours on Fridays. The museum’s temporary exhibitions change regularly, so it’s a good idea to check ahead to see what’s on.

The V&A Museum of Childhood
Over in East London, another branch of the V&A specializes in art and design for young people. The UK’s National Museum of Childhood is the world’s largest museum of its kind and offers exhibitions, events, and activities to engage adults and children alike.
