Iconic and the V&A present The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, the first international retrospective of one of the world's most pioneering and influential bands who are recognised as one of the top selling artists of all time. The exhibition is an unprecedented, innovative and multi-sensory journey through Pink Floyd's extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music, design and staging of the band, from their debut in the 1960's through to the present day. It has been produced with active involvement and collaboration from the three surviving band members, and includes artefacts such as instruments, music technology, original designs, architectural drawings, hand-written lyrics, graphics and artwork.

Immersing visitors in Pink Floyd's iconic visuals and sound, the exhibition begins with the psychedelic sounds of their early years, moving through their internationally renowned concept albums of the 1970's and beyond. The Pink Floyd Exhibition will illustrate the band's pioneering use of special effects, sonic experimentation and powerful imagery, and explores the narrative arc of a band that began in London's 'swinging sixties' and whose influence continues today. Visitors will gain a unique insight into a group of world-class musicians who have always defied artistic boundaries.

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains is designed by Stufish entertainment architects, founded by the late pioneering stage designer, Mark Fisher. The exhibition has been curated by Aubrey 'Po' Powell, the Creative Director of Pink Floyd, who with his late partner Storm Thorgerson as founders of design company Hipgnosis Ltd., designed much of Pink Floyd's revolutionary album art. Aubrey Powell curates alongside Paula Stainton for Pink Floyd and, for the V&A, a team lead by Senior Curator Victoria Broackes. The curators have worked in close consultation with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason on the content of the exhibition, which will feature over 350 artefacts spanning the band's five decades, alongside material from the V&A's outstanding collections of art, design, architecture and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb experience As a long term Pink Floyd fan, I was not sure what to expect - but it was brilliant. Informative and well presented. There is so much to take in that I may just have to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortably Numb Well worth visiting this exhibition and very interesting especially with the use of the interactive headphones but ensure you have plenty of time as exhibits are on both sides and the amount of people there can easily sweep you along

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea. Rooms too crowded, I never knew where to stand. Rooms too small. Also too dark making it difficult to read smaller notices. The hand held sound devices were generally excellent. A well thought out event but it missed out on being event of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best three hours of my life in a museum. Last week, I travelled to London with my wife to visit the V&A and in particular the Pink Floyd exhibition. What an incredible experience. Having always been a fan, I had looked forward to visiting the museum since I hearing about the exhibition. I thought the 'timeline' idea was great; starting at the beginning and progressing through the various rooms in parallel with the albums created. The headsets worked brilliantly, 'picking up' the nearest item automatically as you moved through an area or room. The amount of memorabilia and information was staggering. Here was Dave Gilmour's black guitar, why he liked it, what tracks he used it on. Here was Nick Mason telling us why he became a drummer. Here was an explanation of how the name came about. Roger Waters explains Dark Side of the Moon. And as a backdrop, the music. I stood foot tapping, listening to Breathe and reading the various pieces of information about the album whilst all around me were pieces of drum kits, keyboards, guitars. The entry was staggered so that only so many people went in at a time. Good idea. Although lots of people were reluctant to move from the first room (understandably), there was no pushing, everyone just enjoyed themselves. 'The Wall' was amazing. The giant 'puppets', the 'wife', the 'mother' the 'wall'. Fantastic. Some of the items were incredibly interesting; the story of the 'beds' video from Momentary Lapse of Reason. So funny, but loved the explanation. The hang glider on the cover, the dogs, the french maid. Incredible. The climax of the exhibition was the last room. Two tracks - the first and last - great idea. We listened to 'Arnold Layne' and then 'Comfortably Numb' either standing around the walls or sitting (or lying) on the floor. Some people even played air guitar ! I loved the idea of the photos and videos going around the room much like the music filled the room so that you felt in the middle of the whole thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sad only saw half The exhibition was very badly set out I felt there was not enough room given to the exhibits if people in front of us stopped for anymore than a couple of minutes at each exhibit it caused excessive ques and this caused me to go round several exhibits on the other hand pink floyd is known for its use of lighting and lasers during there performances and this was almos skipped there was a small area given to lighting but you could blink and miss it over all very disappointed don't go on a Saturday very very busy earphones provided also had very bad sound quality
