We visited the Victoria and Albert Museum in February as a birthday treat for our daughter. It came about because my daughter said in the queue for the Natural History Museum that she didn't want to go in. I told her that there were lots of princess outfits which of course she believed, she was very disappointed to find there were no costumes inside. She loved looking at all the outfits from different decades and the jewellery and imagining who would wear them.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is vast housing 145 galleries. The galleries are from different eras and different parts of the world, filled with artefacts from the floor to ceiling. We really enjoyed it.

We had a quick look in the gift shop and as with most gift shops in museums, it was very expensive.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is a great place to visit and I would highly recommend going for a look if you are in London.
