Victorian And Albert Museum
Victorian and Albert Museum is also a massive museum which has the largest number of objects on permanent display, even more than the ones in British Museum, which displays 80,000 objects at one time. The museum has around 4.5 million objects actually. So, it is incredible how authorities manage to display such whopping pieces of artwork here in space which is less than the one in British Museum. Moreover, tourists are always crazy to enter Museum of Childhood here, since it has largest proportion of the total artefacts on display in the museum. So, the place is a delight to visit, since people could really enthral themselves with the great pieces of contemporary as well as historical pieces of art. Though, the museum does suffer from space constraint, still, the number of artefacts that it has to display can never be said to be ‘low’ in any case.
National Gallery is a great place to visit for art lovers, since can relish the pleasure of watching each piece of artwork in minute detail. This is because there is ample space for each and every artwork here. The gallery spreads in whopping 46,396 meter area, but it only has 2300 exhibits to display to the public. In a way, this is positive since there is more space for each and every exhibit. Tourists are always enchanted by the ‘Secret Room’ here that has around 800 paintings. So, obviously, this room is the first choice of art lovers here. This is the reason why this place is frequently visited by visitors from all over the world.
