Explore the V&A online

The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our highest priority. In line with the latest government advice, the V&A is temporarily closed. While we hope to reopen in December, there's lots to discover online – from exclusive content to events, games and family activities, to art history courses with V&A Academy.

Visit our blog for the latest announcements about the closure, and keep in touch on social media. Sign-up to receive weekly emails bringing you a wealth of articles and videos to enjoy from home.

You can still book a ticket for a future visit.
