Competition: Free Victoria and Albert Museum membership!

To celebrate being a tenth of the way to my goal, I’ve decided to offer one

Victoria and Albert Museum membership – free!

Groupon had a special deal for these memberships a while ago and I bought two, but can’t think who would really want the second one. Now that I’ve joined the Museums’ Association, which gives many of the same benefits as V&A membership, I effectively have THREE V&A  memberships, which is a bit ridiculous really.

Membership offers:

  • Free unlimited priority entry to V&A exhibitions
  • Members’ Previews of major exhibitions and new galleries
  • Members’ Room
  • V&A Magazine
  • Members’ Events
  • 10% off at the museum cafes and shops (inc. at the Museum of Childhood) plus discounts at a few other random restaurants and a spa.

The members’ room has a computer with internet access, so you can leave your netbook at home, and free tea and coffee (make it yourself) which saves money for a start. Then you can skip the queues at Lates events and get in free to special exhibitions. The shop is notoriously good, and you get 10% off there. Basically, it’s a damn good prize.

To enter, post a comment below, answering this question:

This chandelier is in the entrance to the V&A. Who made it?

Comments will be screened until the competition’s over a week from today at midnight on Tuesday February 15th.

Update: competition is now closed, so comments are visible. I literally pulled the names out of a hat and the winner is Cheryl Morris. Hope you enjoy your prize, Cheryl!

I've challenged myself to visit 100 museums in a year, from the massive to the miniscule, in London and other places.

    Answer: Dale Chihuly

    I’m a lover of museums and London is one of the best places to witness them. The V&A always surprises me with the diversity of exhibits it shows.

    My favourite museum though, I must confess, is the Natural History Museum in New York. A wonderous array of historical objects.
