At the Museum of Food you can experience how artists, designers and scientists are reimagining the way we think about food and how we eat it.

Back when the V&A was founded in 1852, as a Museum of Manufactures, there was a display focused on what our foods contain and what that meant for our health. Now, in 2019, the V&A is looking at food once more, with its headline exhibition ‘Food: Bigger than the Plate’ opening on 18 May. From gastronomic experiments to urban farming, this exhibition brings together the politics and pleasure of food to ask how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future.

The V&A has invited Imperial College, the Royal College of Art, the Design Museum and the Institut Francais to contribute to a varied programme of displays, workshops and installations, all celebrating our relationship with food.
