[ SIGN THE PETITION ] Display the collection of European arms and armour

  • Petitioning the Victoria & Albert Museum

The Victoria & Albert Museum owns one of the best collections of Renaissance and later European arms and armour in the UK, yet almost all of this collection has now been in storage for over a decade. The museum is large and has several possible spaces to display this important national collection.

If the V&A is not willing or not able to display this important national collection then they should loan a significant portion of it to a museum that is willing and able to display it. Such an important collection should not be kept in storage any longer.
