Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

These galleries will contain some of the most magnificent and elaborate works of art and design in the V&A collections. Around 1,100 objects will explore European art and design between 1600 and 1800, continuing the displays in the V&A’s award-winning Medieval & Renaissance Galleries and completing the restoration of the entire front wing of the Museum. We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for their generous support of this project.
