The main entrance to the museum is in Cromwell Road and there is also a side entrance in Exhibition Road.

The easiest way to get to the museum from the station is through the pedestrian subway. When you come through the ticket barrier you will see the street outside through the exit on the left but on the right-hand side of the ticket hall is the entrance to the pedestrian subway. The exit to the Victoria and Albert Museum has a very obvious sign.

Entry is free. There is a restaurant within the museum and a cafe in the garden, used only during the summer, together with numerous toilets. There is a free floor plan available in the museum and, believe me, you'll need it. Alternatively you can view, and print, the floor plans here. There are five floors of displays so there is a lot to see.
