    Copyright Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 2012During 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.
