The V&A is the world’s leading Museum of art, design and performance with collections unrivalled in their scope and diversity. It was established to make works of art available to all and to inspire British designers and manufacturers. Today, the V&A’s collections, which span over 5,000 years of human creativity in virtually every medium and from many parts of the world, continue to intrigue, inspire and inform. As the home of the national collection of architecture, the V&A holds monumental plastercasts, large-scale architectural fragments and entire historic rooms as well as models, drawings and sketchbooks by major British and international architects, from the fifteenth century to the present day.
