This week, the V&A has responded to the needs of art and culture in a digital age, and uploaded more than 1.2 million of its fascinating objects for online consumption.
The new Explore the Collections platform provides a revolutionary new way to interact with the museum’s treasure trove of exhibits. Wherever you are in the world, you will be able to search, view and learn more about the artefacts and artworks on display. It is all part of the museum’s dedication to broadening access to national collections, even with the pandemic closing its doors.
Explore the Collections is the inaugural project of its kind for the museum. It brings together data, stories, images and content about the collection and fully integrates the user’s experience, telling stories of each piece and its context and recommending curated journeys through the archives.
