Victoria & Albert Museum

Renamed in 1899 in honour of Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert, the impressive Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A Museum) was founded in 1952 and is one of the leading art and design museums in the world today. Over the centuries, the V&A has nurtured interest in the conquests of the British Empire, promoting science, industry and the arts.
