V&A releases more details about Olympic Park venues

New V&A museum
NINETY90/A&M

The Victoria & Albert Museum has released further information about two new sites that it will open in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2023.

One of the venues, a collection and research centre, is described as an "immersive cabinet of curiosities".

Visitors will be able to learn about objects from creation to conservation and see staff "at the V&A working on real stuff in real time".

The other interconnected site, a new museum at Stratford Waterfront, will feature curated exhibitions as well as commissions and performances.

Find out more about the £1.1bn re-development of the site here.
