Pink Floyd – Their Mortal Remains opened at the Victoria & Albert Museum last week and it’s a true manifest to the band’s influence and accomplishments.

You can now check out the newest exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum as the Pink Floyd Exhibition opens its doors. It features an audio-visual journey through the extraordinary world of one of Britain’s most iconic bands. Chronicling their musical careers from the 1960’s until present day, it’s an experience not to be missed.

In partnership with audio geniuses Sennheiser, the museum offers a one-of-a-kind walk through the experience with personalised sound. Not only do you listen to the epic Pink Floyd sound throughout the entire experience, but any video content within the exhibition is linked to your headphones so that the sound starts when you’re close to the screen, and turns back to the music when you walk away.

A true feast for the eyes, the exhibition features hundreds of items from the band’s career – mixing desks, instruments, a replica of the original touring bus, The Division Bell album cover heads, and so many more. There’s even a piece dedicated to the photoshoot of the 1977 album Animals (you know, the one with the pig flying above Battersea Power Station).

It’s an immersion in the world of Pink Floyd and all their creative processes, which ends with a 360-degree concert screening form the band’s Live Aid show in 2005.

If you like Pink Floyd or are remotely interested in British music history, we strongly recommend to go check out this wonderful exhibition.

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.co.uk.
