SSE London Alumni Evening Tour V&A Museum

V&A in London is considered the best museum of decorative arts in the world. SSE Alum Annika Hall will take you on a one hour introductory tour of the museum.

The tour begins by explaining how the V&A was founded after the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park in 1851. We’ll discover how diversified the V&A collection is in its geography, medium, technique and craftsmen. In light of the constant rejuvenation of the displays, we’ll explore how the gallery is refreshed, curated and designed for a C21st museum visitor. Finally we’ll visit the historic cast courts, Islamic and Mughal art, architecture and contemporary work such as the famous glass chandelier by American artist Dale Chihuly.
