Victoria & Albert: Art & Love
19 March - 31 October 2010
This major exhibition is the first ever to focus on Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's shared enthusiasm for art. Bringing together over 400 items from the Royal Collection, it celebrates the royal couple's mutual delight in collecting and displaying works of art, from the time of their engagement in 1839 to the Prince's untimely death in 1861. The exhibition also challenges the popular image of Victoria - the melancholy widow of 40 years - and reveals her as a passionate and open-minded young woman.

Open daily, 10:00-17:30 (last admission 16:30)
1 August - 28 September, 10:00-17:30 (last admission 16:30)
