Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

Each year, to celebrate the festive period, the V&A commissions a leading designer to create a Christmas tree for the Grand Entrance of the Museum. These unique installations range from lavishly decorated real trees to man-made twists on the tradition.
