Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

A craft is an art or occupation that requires a special, often manual, skill. In 2011, the V&A in collaboration with the Craft Council hosted the exhibition ‘Power of Making’.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
