This is a wonderful bookend with a great story and strong design and has always been popular. This complex entrance includes the statues of Queen Victoria above and Prince Albert below. This museum of decorative art and design was first opened to the public in 1852 following the success of London’s Great Exhibition at Chrystal Palace. It was based on the Victorian cultural ideal "to extend the influence of science and art on productive industry"; one of the world’s great museums.
