I recently added this brief history of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum to the website. You can have a read here! Who could have guessed that the museum had such an intricate history all of its own!
The Museum not only houses 2,000 artifacts from 2000-years of history. The V&A started life in the mid 19th Century when the government decided that the arts were desperately undervalued and they needed to create more places for creatives and art appreciators to visit. The V&A was born…and the rest as they say is history.
In 2015, the V&A is still one of the most popular museums in London, and visitors will quickly understand why it has long been one of London’s most intriguing establishments.
