We love stories, and there couldn’t be a better place discover a lot of them under one roof!


35 Minutes


Explore the eclectic and seemingly endless collection of art, culture, and design that is housed in the Victoria & Alberts Museum. This tour is guided by James - an art historian and a museum specialist, and Vidi Guides' local journalist Sarah, who will walk you through the museum’s history, and tell rare stories behind its collections.
