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, V&A Museum of Childhood, Blythe House, V&A Dundee) are temporarily closed.
After careful consideration, we have had to amend our forthcoming programme. Our upcoming exhibition Bags: Inside Out will now open in September 2020, and Renaissance Watercolours: from Durer to Van Dyck will unfortunately no longer be going ahead. The rest of our exhibition programme is currently proceeding as planned and we will continue to update our website with the latest information and advice.
We sincerely apologise for any disappointment – we’ll be in touch with ticket holders and look forward to welcoming visitors again upon reopening.
