V&A Members get a chance to view the exhibition, which showcases late imperial colonial architectural style in tropical geography developed in the hot, humid conditions of West Africa. After independence, India and Ghana adopted the style as a symbol of modernity and progressiveness, distinct from colonial culture.

Please book one ticket per adult aged 16 or older attending the exhibition, including yourself. You may book one ticket for an adult guest if you hold a valid Plus Guest Membership. All Members may also bring up to four children under 16 without booking tickets for them.

Members' Preview Days run during general museum opening hours, Thursday 10:00 - 17.30 (last entry 17:00) and Friday 10:00 - 21:45 (last entry 21:00).

Valid Membership cards must be presented with tickets to gain entry to the exhibition. The named cardholder must be present for the tickets to be used.
