Have you been to the Design Museum in its new home in Kensington? It's now housed in an incredible new building where the architecture is just as interesting to admire as the exhibits! This museum is focused on design in multiple forms including graphics, products, fashion, architecture, and industrial design. It is considered to be one of the world's leading museums dedicated to contemporary design in multiple forms.
The new Design Museum has much more space, and can host more talks and events in its new 200 seat auditorium. It also features its first permanent exhibit called 'Designer Maker User'. This fascinating exhibit takes you through nearly a century of modern design through these three roles, featuring nearly 1,000 pieces of twentieth and twenty-first century design from fashion, graphics/art, architecture, engineering, and technology/digital. The museum also hosts a series of temporary exhibits, so check their website and Instagram account to stay up to date with the latest happenings.
The Design Museum is open daily between 10:00 - 18:00. It is also open late on the first Friday of each month until 20:00. It is free to check out the permanent exhibits, but expect a charge for tickets for temporary exhibits. I can also recommend the fantastic gift shop as well as they are filled with all kinds of chic and modern items (and great if looking for a unique gift)!
