What is Victoria And Albert Museum?

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is world's largest museum of art and design. The museum covers 12,5 acres and has 145 galleries spanning 5,000 years of art. The museum was founded in 1852 and is named after Prince Albert and Queen Victoria. This does not mean the museum is outdated because in 2001 it embarked on a major innoavtion project introducing new galleries, facilities and gardens. However, the strength of the museum is not only in quantity but also in quality. The museum's staff is able to do proffesional research and to carefully conservate the collection. Moreover, the staff is also able to give information about the collections and there is a special educational department for group visits. The museum's collections include architecture, textiles, metalwork, photography and fashion and many more. This broad offer of collections is unrivaled. The temporary exhibitions in the Victoria and Albert museum are also guaranteed to be impressive, a good example of this is the 2003 exhibiton Art Deco. And when you have seen enough art and design you can relax in the nearby gardens. This, together with the large collection and easy acces to the museum via public transport makes the Victoria and Albert a very attractive museumm.
