Yes I meant “Victoria & Albert Museum”. And yes, it does bother me a lot that I made a mistake.
It will be a real pity not to visit the museums in London, seeing as 1) free admission & 2) museums basically lined up the street towards Imperial College. This will be the first of a 4-part series I have for the 4 museums Hazel and I visited while we were in London! 🙂
First up is the Victoria & Albert Museum, which is located near Imperial College, which made it real convenient to visit. It was founded in 1852, and if you have already guessed, named after Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert.
Victoria & Albert Museum is also the world’s largest museum of decorative art and design, which I can testify to, we spent ages in there!
We entered the museum through the underpass entrance from South Kensington tube station. A simple bag check is needed before entering the museum, which I totally understand seeing as the Victoria & Albert Museum houses over 4.5 million objects on display *wow*.
The museum is also home to its iconic glass chandelier which adds a beautiful touch to the giant dome of its main entrance.
We spent a really long time in the museum, probably a good few hours! The museum was huge and full of displays of literally anything and everything, which left us feeling really impressed. Well it was probably also because it was the first museum we visited in London!
Either way, it’s a great place to drop by and spend an hour or two admiring the exhibits! Plus it’s free, it doesn’t leave you with much to consider with 🙂
