Room 131: Glass
Room 131 vividly illustrates the entire history of glass-making from ancient times to the present day. Islamic, British and European collections among others are represented, as well as a selection of objects illustrating examples of glass-making techniques. A specially commissioned staircase by glass artist Danny Lane leads to a mezzanine crammed with the study collections.
The gallery provides interactive screens where you can find out more about glass-making, look at maps, read short stories and get an overview of glass from around the world. Object label information is available via touch-screen, providing further information about any object in the room.
Room 131 is on Level 4 of the V&A South Kensington.
