This places was huge and had a little of everything. Most of the museum is free, though it’s nice to leave a donation.
We went on Friday because it was open from 10 in the morning until almost 10 in the evening. We headed over in the late afternoon, around 6 when the shops we were at started closing.
As it turns out the museum had a few entrances. We took the subway over and ended up following signs that led to an underground entrance. I was really impressed how easy being a tourist in London was.
Not all of the exhibits were open but we still had quite a lot to look at and because we were there late, it was nearly empty.
Sculpture details! Ugh. I love details on sculptures. I might get a bust of Phong made someday…
The jewelry exhibit was one of the ones closed but we still found shiny things to look at.
Tiny old crowns!
English style dress from 1785!
Dress details. Clothing and jewelry were enclosed in glass but there was also a lot of larger displays of furniture.
I have so many pictures. SO MANY. And I didn’t take pictures of even a quarter of the things we saw.
They had collections of clothing and accessories from all over the world.
There were both old and modern fashion in the exhibits.
Tea sets! It’s probably good that they put them in glass cases. I might have been tempted to touch otherwise.
