The Victoria and Albert museum is the greatest museum of design and art in the world. The structure opened in 1909, and has been modified in adjacent buildings. It includes some great masterpieces of furniture, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, posters, glass and textiles.

The collection includes art from almost every part of the world. It consists European sculpture, French furniture, Italian arms and armors, German Murray collection, Indian art, and Chinese ceramics.

There are medieval galleries which are so stunning and there are so many eye catchy artworks. Along with the permanent collection, the Victoria and Albert museum conducts temporary exhibitions and regular events. One of the special and unique things about this museum is a restaurant.
