Having an extensive collection of items from different parts of the world, the Victoria & Albert Museum is definitely well worth the time.
There are 2 entrances to the museum. One of them is the street entrance, where you enter and can see the colorful chandelier above the front desk, where you can pick up a map. The other entrance is from the South Kensington Tube station, connected by a tunnel, and into the back.
More commonly known as the V&A, it has a nice collection of items from the medieval and Renaissance periods. Some items include golden crucifixes, altarpieces, and tapestry.
The biggest highlight(s) are the Cast Courts, which just looks very impressive. There are replicas of Renaissance sculptures, like Michelangelo's David. And Trajan's column, which had to be cut in half, to fit in the building. Definitely should not be missed.
There is an Islamic and Asian collections as well, but unfortunately, I did not get to see them, as I had only 90 minutes to see this place. But it was definitely well worth it.
Needless to say, there is just so much to see in this museum. Therefore, one should not try to see it all in one visit. Instead, just pick a few sections, and focus on those. Add more if you still have the time and/or energy.
The great thing about this museum, is that admission is free. So you can definitely come back on another day, and see more of this museum.
