The Victoria & Albert Museum in London announced its upcoming exhibit "Taylor Swift: Songbook Trail" on Monday. The free multimedia exhibit will celebrate Taylor Swift and the record-breaking success of The Eras Tour in the UK.

Visitors of the Songbook Trail will be taken through 13 stops (because any other number just wouldn't be right), each showcasing an important period in the 14-time Grammy award-winner's career. The stops will feature 16 costumes from the artist's archives as well as several of her instruments and awards, most of which have never been on public display.

Notable pieces in the collection include custom cowboy boots from 2007 and the black Victorian-style gown Swift wore in her "Fortnight" music video.

"Taylor Swift's songs like objects tell stories, often drawing from art, history and literature," curator Kate Bailey said in the press release. "We hope this theatrical trail across the museum will inspire curious visitors to discover more about the performer, her creativity and the V&A objects."

The "Songbook Trail" will wind through permanent galleries in the V&A, allowing Swift's lyrics, costumes, music and performances and other objects to meet in a dialogue between traditional and contemporary art forms.

The exhibit will be on view from July 27 to Sept. 8, 2024 at the V&A in London.
