The Engineering Season at the V&A

Unsung heroes

Taking a look at the designs that create and shape the built world, the Engineering Season runs from 18 May-6 November 2016  at the V&A.

A large-scale installation has been commissioned to mark the start of the V&A’s Engineering Season. Called Elytra Filament Pavilion, the massive robot-made canopy inspired by beetle shells will be erected in the V&A’s garden.

In addition to the garden pavilion woven by a robot, there will be a major retrospective of the Danish British engineer, Ove Arup.

There will also be a display highlighting the global impact of contemporary British engineers.

Not organised by the V & A Museum

Taking a look at all things Scottish, Treasure Hunts in London are organising a treasure hunt around the V&A looking at art and artifacts from north of the border. Bring your team of 2 to 4 players to explore this top London museum.

As always the hunt has a mixture of straight and cryptic clues and puzzles to solve. The clues are aimed at an adult audience and require you to “hunt” for the “treasure” (ie items within the museum collection) before answering questions about it.

Book your tickets

The next treasure hunt available to the public will be on Saturday 2nd July 2016 at 2pm. The treasure hunt will end with sharing a glass or two of wine in a nearby bar. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team.Tickets must be booked in advance.

This treasure hunt is also available to hire for private parties and has the option of an after-hunt meal at a 4* hotel.
