During my stay in London as a London Ambassador for the Olympics I managed to visit a few museums. Natural History Museum and the V&A were open late as part of the Cultural Olympiad Exhibition Road Show. After one of my shifts, I headed over to soak up the atmosphere of being in the Natural History Museum at night. As it was the first night of the Road Show, things were a little quiet. However, that was great for me as I essentially had *my* Natural History Museum to myself.
I left Natural History Museum and went to Exhibition Road Show. There was an exciting carnival feel with people playing free games of chess, lots of singing and dancing and food. I ran into a fellow London Ambassador as I was on my way to the V&A. He explained the V&A was closed for a VIP but would be open late tomorrow night. While I left mumbling about VIPs, I decided to see about coming back.
And I’m so glad I did.Tags: Cultural Olympiad, Heatherwick, London, V&A
