Mitä teet

Come be surprised by the discoveries at the most eclectic major museum in London showcasing pieces from Europe to Asia, spanning 2000 years of human history. Stories of the museum's history and importance will be uncovered through its hidden architectural details both inside and out. We will explore the history of British design through Henry VIII's writing desk, the Great Bed of Ware, and Charles I's tapestries, before moving on to the world famous Raphael cartoons. Developments in sculpture from famous works by Rodin, and Bernini, to the relatively unknown but influential Italian renaissance sculptor Giambologna will be discussed. A mechanical musical tiger from India, a Chinese Qing Dynasty Imperial Throne, and the world's oldest Persian carpet will be brought to life in-front of your eyes as I tell you the stories and secrets you won't discover anywhere else. We will discover the secret history and importance of the Victorian cast courts, hunt down Royal jewellery belonging to Queen Victoria and Elizabeth I, before learning about the rivalry between Turner and Constable in-front of some of their best works. Finally we will hear the story behind the most important, and yet most hidden, objects in the V&A; the Devonshire hunting tapestries. Round it all off with a visit to the first ever museum cafe, designed by three great British artists!

Kathy

I'm an Oxford university graduate trained in anthropology, history, art history and curating. Passionate about museums and art in London, I have been helping visitors to discover the secrets behind the history and collections of the Victoria and Albert museum for the past five years. I've lived in South Korea, Japan, China, France, Nepal, India and Thailand, not to mention travelling in 40+ countries. I will introduce you to this truly global collection with a unique perspective of a world traveller who has experienced the cultures which the museum highlights. Let me lead you to amazing secret discoveries in this museum of 2.27 million objects displayed over eight miles. I give visitors a unique perspective on the objects and their pasts and weave stories of intrigue and discovery.

Missä tulette olemaan

The Victoria and Albert Museum is a monument to Albert's interest in education, design, and science. It is also a monument to the love between the royal couple. We will explore hidden secrets and small galleries that you would not find alone, whilst also hitting the highlights. We will visit the main galleries, the courtyard, the cafe and the hidden upper galleries. With eight miles of exhibition space, I will guide you to the best bits!
