The V&A Story
This history of the V&A is a story like no other. From its early beginnings as a Museum of Manufactures in 1852, to the foundation stone laid by Queen Victoria in 1899, to today's state-of-the-art galleries, the Museum has constantly evolved in its collecting and public interpretation of art and design. Its collections span over 5,000 years of human creativity in virtually every medium, housed in one of the finest groups of Victorian 和 modern buildings in Britain.

These are exciting times for the V&A - we're putting on hugely successful exhibitions and events, opening spectacular new galleries and facilities, working nationally and internationally, 和 making our collections more accessible than ever before. We need great people to help us sustain this success.
