V&A Museum

On Saturday we went to the V&A Museum. This museum has something for everyone. It was really great--very impressive. Some of their collections include painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, furniture, textiles, photography (and so much more, whew), but a few of my favorite exhibits were the theatre and performance exhibit and the 20th century design exhibit. Not a museum to be missed if you come to London. Here are a few pictures. The very stunning Dale Chihuly blown glass sculpture above is the first thing you see when you enter.
Lighting from the 20th century design exhibit. 
Costume design in the theatre and performance exhibit. 
A picture of Twiggy from the fashion exhibit. 
Cool band and theatre posters. 
Set design models.  
Paintings. 
The textile library.  There were rows and rows of these cabinets.  A fabric / textile lover's dream.
