2017/08/11 London's V&A Museum
π 2017-08-11 01:01 in Greatbritain2017, Museums
The V&A Museum is another huge London museum of almost everything. It's a very nice set of buildings and rooms connected together on multiple floors with a nice courtyard in the middle:




I was a bit annoyed the first day we went since we went during their extended hours (once a week 17:00 to 22:00), but turns out more than half the rooms were actually closed. In the end, however, whatever was left was enough to fill the 4H+ I had there that first time, and I just went back another time for another 4H-ish. This is another way to say that it's a full day museum (and more if you're thorough).

The breath of collections there is also awesome, without abusing the word. The building itself has lots of art on the walls and ceilings:



interesting modern and less modern art:




religious art:











Some parts of V&A felt like they just didn't fit in the British Museum:

Some rooms had what looked like rooms from Versailles, and other big castles and mansions:





The included a really cool collection of locks and keys:






Other rooms had cultural art:

I'm still a sucker for fine Japanese clothing

Another section was on musicals, which London is known for:





and of course, arts of all kinds:


I need one of those in my living room :)

This doesn't even count other random stuff, like 3D printing and a copy of this first 3D printed gun:
