RECOMMENDED: our full guide to exhibitions in London
This exhibition explores St Paul's Cathedral before, during and after The Great Fire of London. The blaze which consumed the London landmark 350 years ago was rebuilt to designs made by Christopher Wren after the flames tore through it. Here you can discover objects that survived the fire, follow a family trail or join a tour and find out how the heat make the cathedral's stones explode like grenades.
Amazing curator Carey Newsom persuaded 26 teenagers to let a photographer document their bedrooms: now you're invited in to see the results at this exhibition on the museum's concourse. Like homes inside of homes, each room reflects the person who created it, as well as commenting on how how teenagers handle the new privacy created by social media, smartphone tech - and the surprising resurgence of letters and vinyl.
A showcase of board games that'll be sure to have you reminiscing about rainy days spent competing with your siblings. Over 100 objects will be on display featuring games from across the globe and some of the most iconic examples from the V&A's collection. Favourites such as Cluedo, Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly will also be included and a number of hands-on activiities will give visitors the chance to become part of the gaming action.
2016 marks the 150th anniversary of celebrated children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter, who was a frequent visitor to the museum where she would often sit and sketch. This exhibition celebrates the date with artworks, original sketches and her earliest published works on show.
Lockwood Kipling – father of poet Rudyard – was one of those quintessentially Victorian jack-of-all-trades. An artist, designer, sculptor, teacher, curator and champion of the Arts and Crafts movement, he is largely responsible for the V&A's glittering collection of Indian cultural artefacts. This show will look at his remarkable legacy.
In this show, artist Mark Neville is showing a series of photographs of kids at play around the world, from Scotland to Afghanistan. Many of the images feature refugees and warzone survivors, and are a reminder of the fundamental need to play despite harsh and unforgiving circumstances.
Over 100 robots have been gathered for this show, which will chart the 500-year development of our automated friends. Among the tin men on display will be a sixteenth-century mechanical monk, a giant robot from 1950s Italy – and a few familiar faces from the world of science fiction.
Not just something you switch on and off at the mains, electricity is, in fact, as old as the universe. This Wellcome exhibition will take a closer look over the phenomenon – examining how it brought life to the Earth and has in turn been harnassed by humankind. Some of the more gruesome references will include Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' and the electric chair.
One of several shows programmed to coincide with the centennary of Russia's Bolshevik revolution, this exhibition will gather a wealth of art, architectural blueprints and propaganda to present a kind of utopian Moscow that never was. Expect a fascinating insight into the biggest political project of the twentieth century.
This exhibition casts an eye at rapid growth of Japanese design following the Second World War. Architectural plans, cinema, art and photography will tell the story of how widespread destruction brought an urgent need for new and radical approaches to houses.
Fifty years since their first single, Arnold Layne, the V&A is hosting a retrospective of those psychedelic pioneers, the Floyd. Set and construction pieces from The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall join instruments, designs, lyrics and prints - and, yes, a laser show. Wish You Were Here?
An exhibition about industrially produced sheet wood might not exactly sound enthralling. But never underestimate the V&A's ability to take the most humdrum of subjects and bring it to life. This exhibition will cast a look at plywood's revolutionary use within furniture, aircraft and architecture, and the role it currently plays in digital design.
