Putting on the exhibition


The teams at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Treasurer's House have spent months planning and preparing for the exhibition. Find out a little more in this short video including a glimpse at the extent of the full Vivien Leigh archive with the Curator, creating artificial walls and how light levels have been manipulated to protect the items on display.

Possible changes to your visit

This autumn, selected historic rooms that are not part of the exhibition may need to close. If you are visiting specifically to see The Tapestry Room, Princess Victoria's Room and The Queens Room - please call ahead to check they are open on the day you intend to visit.
