Reviews about Victoria and Albert Museum


Reviewed on 8 Jul 2017

I think VA is a must-see Museum in Britain. It is different from the British tradition in telling history from the mainstream of a nation or the remains of a royal family. VA is more humanistic, life-oriented and comprehensive. Here we can see not only the Royal collections, but also the civilized achievements of human manufacturing industry. Fashion, jewelry, home, famous paintings, sculpture, iron art, Middle East civilization, East Asian civilization, the Middle Ages... Everything we should have is omnipresent. On Fridays, there are not only extended closures, but also atrium band performances and drinks services. Among the exhibits are Michelangelo's David and some other works, Rodin's works, and Rafael's authentic works. The meal in the cafe belongs to the quality of conscience. The roast chicken leg is very delicious. The environment of the cafe is also very good. It has been preserved since 1860s decoration. The following links provide detailed coffee shop introductions and exclusive presentations of some exhibits. Https://read.douban.com/reader/column/6899610/chapter/35825406/

This is the exhibition hall built in 1852 for the first Universal Exposition. When you walk into the museum named after Queen Victoria and her husband and visit it for free, you will see various exhibition halls with rich collections. In the first exhibition hall of European collections, we searched for several key collections by looking at the icons on the wall. Then we found that it was too time-consuming, so we went on a horse-and-flower tour. On the first floor, besides the exhibition hall of European collections, there are also exhibition halls of South Korea, Japan and Southeast Asian countries. Of course, there are also exhibition halls of China. Because there is a Chinese introduction here, so we also spent more time visiting. There are also vases in prominent positions in the middle of Ming Dynasty, beside which the sign clearly tells visitors that they can touch by hand. But you need to take off your ring and remind you not to touch other collections. For the first time in our lives, we have touched the cultural relics of the Ming Dynasty in China, and it is in London, England, which is far away from the ocean. It seems a little sentimental and ironic. The entire Victoria and Albert Museum covers a large area, with a cafe in the atrium garden, where many visitors take tea breaks. There are also many tourists sitting on the surrounding grasslands, eating whatever they carry. In the shallow pool in the middle, some naive and lively children are playing with water. On the other side of the museum, the first floor of the room is a magnificent restaurant with interior decoration. There are a lot of guests here. While eating spiritual food, people have not forgotten the material enjoyment of the fruit belly. The upstairs exhibition hall in this area is also a rich display of exhibits. The different types of exhibition halls let us visit the pace of continuous stop. Gold and silver utensils, porcelain decoration, jewelry, oil painting sketches, large-scale sculptures, all inclusive. In Britain, in London, here we once again understand the true meaning of the term museum. Because this is the real museum. Here we are impressed by the fact that the exhibition hall is two stories high, with Roman carved stone pillars in it, and the magnificent carved figures on the tall surface of the pillars are rare to us. It seems that this collection was placed here before the museum was built, otherwise it would be almost impossible to transport such a huge cultural relic. In addition, there are libraries belonging to museums. It seems that there are few libraries with abundant collections in museums in China.
