Even with Flu I went to the Frida Kahlo exhibition today. Spent an hour there. Gradually I kept thinking I wonder what Frida Kahlo would have thought of it. Atmosphere wise it was dark tomblike, to many people on top of each other, the most...More

The grand building itself is reason enough for a visit, and do have lunch in the cafeteria with stained-glass windows. Walk and walk through exhibits ranging from artifacts from the Raj to miniatures to the best-designed silverware from the 20th Century.

There are exhibits for everyone, so wide is the choice and type of items to see. The building and its various halls alone are worth seeing. Or enjoying a cup of coffee in the lovely court yard. Best of all, when taking the subway to...More

The museum does have other pieces - oriental, Roman, British, even some Raphaels, if you can find them. But it is the fashion that is the highlight. The English treat museums like pubs. Chatty and rude. The collection is also poorly planned. A maze, with...More

Lovely building in a fabulous location in London but really not sure about all the exhibits and if they are worth your time. I am sure it is probably up a lot of people’s streets but it wasn’t for us. Love the courtyard though.

They had a great sustainability exhibit. You do have to pay extra to see it. It outlined the history and unforeseen detriments to fashion over time but also explored the present day situation as well as speculation concerning bring the future. Very informative, I learned...More

A simply stunning museum! But don't expect to see everything in one day... or even two. This museum is so expansive that, to do it correctly, you'd need multiple visits. From it's featured exhibits (such as Frida Kahlo and Fashioned from Nature) to it's unexpected...More

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this

10.45 on a Monday morning. It was not overcrowded. Quite civilised and they were holding back people who were trying to get in early. I would say early on a weekday.
