Facts

  • Second World War bomb blast damage is clearly evident along the western facade; the damage was retained "as a memorial to the enduring values of this great museum in a time of conflict.".
  • An exciting 7-storey assymetrical glass spiral entrance addition by Studio Daniel Libeskind was proposed but then abandoned.
  • The museum is home to the world's finest collection of art and design, covering areas such as fabrics to ceramics and furniture to fashion over a period of 3,000 years.
  • The building was originally named the South Kensington Museum; the current name dates from 1899.
