Design Museum

Located in Kensington at the south end of Holland Park (nearest tube station “High Street Kensington” or even “Holland Park”), the new Design Museum is an absolute destination of note in London. The building is modern and spacious yet welcoming at the same time. Despite the rather austere exterior entering you are in the middle of a magnificent atrium with staircases that provide access to both permanent and temporary exhibits.

Entry is free and there is a large souvenir shop on the ground floor and a small café (with free water). There is another shop just off of the Kensington High Street that is also worth a visit. Entrance to the temporary exhibits are generally not free and ticketed.

Permanent Exhibitions

The current permanent (free) exhibit is “Designer Maker User” which explores the effect of design on modern culture. Lots of hands on activities and interesting displays. Very much worth a visit.
