We went to see the Pink Floyd exhibition, it was brilliant. An excellent, well planned walk through the history of one of the worlds most iconic bands. The audio visual made the experience even more meaningful. Pity they wasn't a few more seating areas though. Well done V&A.....
One of my favourite places in the world. Exquisite. It is free entry apart from certain specific exhibits. It is huge and you will need at last a day to see it all properly through wandering about or you could plan specific parts to see. Good cafe/restaurant (obviously quite expensive) and a nice outdoor courtyard water feature area. The place is always busy but it never feels overcrowded. Great location for Science museum and museum of natural history too. Good links from South Ken station via a tunnel directly to the museums.
Simply superb. Dazzling collection. The modern addition to the existing older section is very well done. The restaurant is really impressive although we didn't have anything to eat here. There's a garden and enclosed paddling pool for kids to splash about in a very impressive quadrangle. You would need almost a whole lifetime to see all of it. Free to enter although there's usually a short queue to enter.
Had a great time visiting the Pink Floyd exhibition. Just wish there was more room in the early part of the exhibition. That section is very small and was hard look at the cabinets and information with a large number of people in there. But once pass that the rest was well laid out with enough space and became a very engaging, enjoyable experience
A very large museum, lots of things to see, so plan a plenty of time (4-5hrs maybe?) to walk around if you're a museum lover. The items in the jewelry gallery are the most gorgeous I've ever seen. However, the souvenir is not so special nor worth the price in my opinion. Looking forward to seeing some creativity in the shop next time. P.S. It's free entry.
