Additional Information


The Victoria and Albert Museum(the ''V&A''), which is the United Kingdom's national museum of applied arts. It has a branch named as The V&A Museum of Childhood. It is located in Bethnal Green in the East End of London. In 1872,this museum was founded as the Bethnal Green Museum. The iron structure reused a prefabricated building from Albertopolis, that was replaced with some early sections of the modern V&A complex. The famous architect James William Wild designed the exterior of the building. He designed it with red brick in a Rundbogenstil(round arched)style. This design is very much similar to that in contemporary Germany. This museum is very attractive for their exterior designs.
