 “The V&A’s galleries flourish in dialogue with visitors, and after so many months, I am delighted we will be reopening our doors to the world. Our seven miles of galleries in South Kensington will be open in phases, and we have a range of exciting exhibition and gallery openings to come in the next few months. The V&A has ample space for social distancing, and all safety measures are in place for our visitors to enjoy 5,000 years of ingenuity in art, design and performance. Reopening is only the first phase to our recovery, which is set to last well into next year, and we remain hugely grateful to all our visitors, members and supporters – now more than ever.” – Tristram Hunt, V&A Director 

Perhaps one of the most anticipated moments with the easing of lockdown is the reopening of some of London’s best museums, some of which closed for the first time in history for this duration. Opening its doors to visitors again on the 6th August 2020, the V&A will introduce phases of reopening its premises to allow for a safe environment that is in line with government regulations.

Initially opening all of the ground floor collection galleries, which include the iconic Medieval & Renaissance Gallery, the monumental Cast Courts, the artefacts of The Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art and the very loved Fashion Gallery, along with the Europe 1600 – 1815 galleries on the lower ground floor. 

In line the with the August Bank Holiday weekend, further sections of the museum will re-open, including the first and second floor collection galleries such as The William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery, Theatre & Performance Galleries, and the Photography Centre. 

For those who were unable to visit the critically acclaimed exhibition Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk following its closure just two weeks after its debut, they will be pleased to know that the exhibition has been extended into late October and will also re-open on the 27th August. 

South Kensington is a vibrant cultural hub which is home to the arts and science since its foundation 175 years ago and provides free access to some of the city’s most well-known and acclaimed museums. As the museum notes, “At a time when ideas, beauty, curiosity and connection to nature have never been more important, the three South Kensington museums have all bases covered.” We cannot wait to pay a visit.
