  • Interesting place to visit if you enjoy or study design. Lots of exhibitions through out the year. There is also a cafe and souvenir shop n the ground floor.
  • I haven't visited the Design Museum yet but the website design not encouraging - it could have been so much better.
  • 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.
  • Some great exhibits and a good shop but with the move to Kensington there's not much to see at the moment
  • Not sure if the exhibitions are worth £10 they charge, given that they only have two floors of exhibition. Definately a must see, however if you are into design
