    London - V&A Museum

    August 23, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Seeing as it was raining, I decided to see a museum. This one wasn't even very crowded (in relative London terms).

    Great museum, mostly of artistic stuff throughout history. I particularly loved the superbly detailed marble statues (#1. Valor crushing Cowardice, #2. Neptune and Triton, #3. Ceres, goddess of agriculture, oak).
    I never knew how large Michelangelo's David was (#4, a plaster cast of the original).
    There was also other interesting stuff. #5: a lamp made out of concrete, bronze circuitry, LEDs, and dandelion heads. #6: Edward Snowden's laptop, destroyed after it held the leaked information. Also a section about glassmaking through history.

    A huge museum! I spent maybe 5 hours here and had to rush through some bits to see it all (although I still feel like I might've missed some stuff).
