From virtual sessions and online resources to an ever-changing exhibition programme and inspirational objects, the V&A is the place for creative learning.

Please note we have temporarily suspended school visits to the museum, however, we look forward to welcoming schools groups back for self-guided visits in Autumn 2021. Sign up to our newsletter to keep updated on our programmes and booking a visit.
