Manners and Modernity: Ukiyo-e and etiquette on the Seibu Railway photo

During these exceptional times, the health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our highest priority. In line with the latest advice from Public Health England, all V&A sites (South Kensington, Museum of Childhood, Blythe House, V&A Dundee) are temporarily closed. Due to the ongoing impact, we have made the decision to cancel this display.
