There is so much to see, it's impossible in one visit. I have come here several time over the years, but feel I still haven't seen it all. But enjoy what you can see. Pink Floyd exhibit currently, but queue too long to go in. Great gift shop too.

We ended up spending over 5 hours here enjoying this amazing museum. It is an astonishingly collection of items from around the world, beautifully and perfectly displayed, from fashion to jewelry to silver to glass to Asian and old European treasures. There is so much to discover in this museum. You can focus on just one area or wander all... More

What an excellent exhibition. Tried to book on line but tickets weren't showing available so took a chance at buying directly at the V & A and was lucky they had 2 tickets available for the same day so glad we tried. Didn't know what to expect but wasn't disappointed an amazing 2 hours with a mixture of art work,... More

I love to visit here on my own. It's so relaxing and a real escape from the busy world. There's always lots of really interesting people to talk to, mesmerising arts and the coffee is good. If I could I'd live in this building and never leave!

If you have even a passing liking of Pink Floyd or the early 1970s, you will like this. It follows a similar format to the Bowie and Revolution exhibitions, with great sound as you walk through. If, like me, you're a fan then you really shouldn't miss this. It will remind you of one of their shows, as it is... More

Have spent the past week visiting the museum on several occasions for free independent viewing, paid exhibitions and for coffees and lunches as I was staying nearby. All staff were very polite and provided valuable assistance at ticket office, main entrance and food and beverage counters. Great asset to the museum. The ticketed exhibitions of Pink Floyd : Their Mortal... More

Go see and experience this exhibit and then spend 2-3 hours more to see beautiful art and sculpture! The gift shop is worth checking out and the food/drink spot is amazing with lots of outdoor sitting and viewing of the architecture of the buildings. Don't miss this beautiful spot with great history and culture during your visit to London!

I became a member a few years ago because I know they are going to have great exhibitions when I go. This time it was Pink Floyd which was very cool, but a bit crowded. They also had a Balenciaga exhibition which had gorgeous dress.

A museum you can't miss if you're visiting London ! be careful though if you're looking for paintings because there aren't that many in this museum. Really like the fact that you can have an audioguide on your smartphone... Already went back a few times

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
