In London there’s a place
With an epic cultural shrine
It’s the world’s largest museum
Of decorative arts & design

4.5 million objects
Are here every day
And that doesn’t even count
The rotating exhibit display

The place described above
Is Bert’s next to explore
It’s the Victoria & Albert Museum
He can’t wait to hit the floor!

    • Hi there Lydia
      Bert’s trip is so much fun!
      He’ll look into the Netherlands
      And see what can be done!

      Bert would love to travel
      To the Netherlands one day
      Maybe some day this year
      We’ll stop by & say HEY! :)
