Dance with a Venetian Harlequin in the ballrooms of Europe, draw and decorate your own silver trophy, try on a medieval gauntlet or fabulous corset, or challenge yourself to become a master of your craft. From digital interactives to touch objects and films, there is lots to do, make, try on and find in many of our galleries. Look for the hands-on discovery area symbol on the V&A’s map.
