Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

The London Design Festival is a nine day festival of contemporary design that celebrates London as the creative capital of the world. As the hub of this annual Festival, the V&A is the first point of call for Festival visitors: the place to meet, pick up information, visit inspiring installations and events, and to enjoy the Festival atmosphere.

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.
