The Victoria and Albert Museum is across the street from the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. That area can be described as London's museum gathering area. The Victoria and Albert Museum is the second largest national museum in the UK after the British Museum, and the largest museum of decorative arts and design in the world. The collection includes pottery, clothing, furniture, glass products, metal products, paintings, photographs, prints, sculptures and textiles, etc., and even complete physical objects of residential buildings. Adhering to the consistent collection concept of the United Kingdom, the principle of having nothing but collecting. There is no doubt that the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum are diverse in variety, time-honored, and geographically wide, but the preciousness and uniqueness of the collections are open to question. Listed as if the sculptures on display may be imitations, write in the introduction that the originals are collected in a certain museum.

Quite a lot to see from various cultures e.g. British, Thai, Japan etc. Great cafe as well. You could easily spend a whole day here.
Londoners really do visit the V&A, because its rotating special exhibitions and the quality of its permanent collections. In recent years it’s been skewed a little too much towards pandering to baby boomers, but it’s still worth a trip. Try the Friday late evening openings and don’t miss the shop for ritzy (and pricey) design gifts
Well worth a visit and close to the Natural History and Science museums.
Just refurbished, this is one of he best "overlooked" museums in London
