Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

FuturePlan is an ambitious programme of development which is transforming the V&A. The best contemporary designers are creating exciting new galleries and visitor facilities, while revealing and restoring the beauty of the original building. As the world’s greatest museum of art and design, the V&A not only houses an extraordinary collection but is a crucial exhibit in itself. By introducing bold new architectural interventions, FuturePlan aims to delight and to inspire visitors, and to continue the museum’s tradition of championing new talent. The projects showcase a variety of styles and approaches, from both established and emerging practices, reflecting the great diversity of the V&A collections. In the past 10 years, over 70% of the museum’s public spaces have been transformed, improving access and allowing the collections to be more elegantly and intelligently displayed. Over the next few years a range of major projects will be completed, including the construction of a new purpose-built gallery for the museum’s world-class temporary exhibitions, a brand new entrance, courtyard and café on Exhibition Road and a new suite of galleries for the magnificent European collections (1600-1800).

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.
