Full details

This visit is initially for Stuart Osborne's group and friends but is open to all U3A members.

For the rest of us it is a chance to visit any one or more of the South Kensington Museums.  All of them have free entry, although there may be charges for certain temporary exhibitions.  All have at least one restaurant and cafe.  There are places where you can eat packed lunches in the Science and Natural History Museums.

The V&A has free one hour introductory tours at 11.30, 13.30 and 15.30, as are the British Gallery tours at 13.30 and 14.30, also lasting an hour.  There are galleries for architecture, ceramics, furniture, glass, Asia, fashion and jewellery, photography, scupture etc as well as special temporary exhibitions.  If you have not been to the V&A before, you will be amazed by what is there - it is the largest museum of art and design in the world - over eight miles of galleries with something to interest everybody.

Obviously the same can be said of the other two museums as well.  You can find details of any special exhibits on the internet.
