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.

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.
