Victoria and Albert Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is the world's greatest museum of art and design, with collections unrivalled in their scope and diversity.

Discover 3000 years' worth of amazing artefacts from many of the world's richest cultures including ceramics, furniture, fashion, glass, jewellery, metalwork, photographs, sculpture, textiles and paintings.

The Victoria and Albert Museum's Asian collections include objects from East Asia, South and South-East Asia, and the Middle East. They are rich in a broad range of artistic media and illustrate many different aspects of religious, courtly and everyday life. They include work from the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Pakistan, Sikkim, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Viet Nam. The department also includes collections from the Middle East and North Africa, hitherto held by the departments that collect Western art. This will allow their significance to be fully appreciated for the first time. Copyright of VCM
