We visited the Pink Floyd exhibition Their Mortal Remains which is absolutely superb. It covers their entire career from the early 60s to The Endless River. It is very well laid out with the supplied ear phones giving a very interesting sound track. The last room has screens on all four walls showing the promo films for Arnold Layne and High Hopes and the Live 8 performance of Comfortably Numb in superb sound. Very moving. Highly recommended.
This museum is amazing in what it has to offer, loads of various interests catered for here and a lovely outdoors area with paddling pool that's a great for kids to frollock in in the summer months, with a cafe too. Inside on ground floor is a rather nice restaurant. Had a great sculpture wide hallway. Several minor and major special exhibitions throughout the year are great highlights! Don't t miss out on this free place to visit apart from the major exhibition s that cost money.
The V&A in Albertopolis is the place for decorative arts with over five hectares dedicated to them. An incredible collection and wonderful space offered to you for free or a recommended donation of £5. The ever changing and paying exhibitions are also often very interesting and worth seeing. In the summer, treat yourself to a nice coffee break in the garden.
This was my first time at the V&A and I was not disappointed. The museum was bigger than I expected. It is free to get in so I came back two days. This allowed me to spend more time viewing the artifacts and was not so hard on my feet. I still didn’t get to see all the rooms. I will be back. The museum is very interesting indeed with a good variety on offer. I would highly recommend a visit (or three).
Free and gorgeous. Spend a day or slip in and out doing chunks at a time. Spend the £1 (donation) to get a map though... The galleries are laid out in a logical order only up to a point, and stairs and lifts don't always take you where you want to go. The cafe is expensive, but worthwhile to get a coffee and sit in the beautiful garden courtyard. They serve proper afternoon tea on Sundays, but you can get a giant scone, clotted cream, strawberry preserve and a tea any time. They have WiFi, and pictures are allowed (without flash) in most galleries. Your bag will be searched at the door.
