The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is another epicenter for all things theatrical. It documents the theater history of the UK, which is where Shakespeare, of course, came from.
Pantomime and puppetry are other areas covered - think Cinderella at Christmas for the former, and Punch and Judy shows for the latter - as well as opera, circus, set design, and so much else besides.
The V&A, as it’s affectionately known, is very extensive and as such also includes memorabilia and items from very unusual theater collections, including from the realms of paper ‘peepshow’ theater.
Schools, students, and families are also welcome to join, with activities and interactive educational elements for these, although the collection is currently online.
