Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

The Medieval & Renaissance Galleries are home to one of the world's most remarkable collections of treasures from the period. Ranging from delicately carved ivories and intricate metalwork to Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks and powerful sculptures, they tell the story of European art and culture from 300–1600. These galleries have been made possible thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generosity of many other donors.

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.
