  • I went to the Design Museum for the fourth time just a couple weeks ago. The design of the year exhibition was taking place which was an extreme treat, glad I happened to go while this was the case. I had also been a couple of years ago to see a previous design of the year exhibition where I first explored the Paul Simon floor. I found this to be somewhat uninteresting, however I loved the way they displayed his studio and home - it gave me a lot of ideas for my own. Afterward I went to the top floor where the design of the year exhibition was taking place. There were a lot of amazing candidates and I thought it was a nice touch that you were able to vote for your favourite. I would definitely recommend going. Even if you aren't really into design, going while the design of the year exhibition is on might still interest you. There a flurry of design from deferent categories, including technology, product and many others.
  • Fantastic museum to design, the annual design of the year exhibition is the best. Café and restaurant is great as well as the selection of items in the rather small shop; I'd there is one complaint to be had its that it's all rather small. Luckily they'll be moving to new digs as of November 2016 to the old Commonwealth building in Kensington which will provide the much needed space.
  • From the website - The Design Museum is now closed and will reopen in its spectacular new location on High Street Kensington on 24 November 2016.
  • A very nice museum. They have very good workshops!
  • An opportunity to see iconic cycles close up. Was fortunately uncrowded when we visited so unrushed. The Design floor was interesting and showcased a lot of upcoming, conceptual and already successful innovative designs.
