One of the world's leading museums devoted to contemporary design in every form.
The brainchild of Sir Terence Conran, the world’s first modern design museum opened in 1989, devoted to every aspect of design ‘from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design’.
Small museum with interesting exhibits and fantastic shop. Definitely worth the entrance fee.
The future isn’t possible without innovative design and efficient use of scarce resources. The Design Museum upholds its mantra by showing the best of design and architecture - A lesson in lifestyle
Really good quality exhibitions (no permanent collection) and take a look at the shop!
Lesser known museum, great current exhibition about the last 40 years of design in the UK.
This is one of the first museums of modern design, which exhibits industrial, fashion, product, and graphic design works, among others. Located at 28 Shad Thames. Open 10am to 5:45pm
Just go. Whatever the exhibition there is always something fantastic to see - even if it's the view from the windows! Great shop, cafe and talks too.
The huge bronze head outside is perfect for kids to play on.
The Drawing for fashion exhibition is fuckawsome brilliant!!!
A hub for all matters of contemporary international design. Here, a remarkable balance is achieved between hyper-progressive technology and the history from which it came. Great podcast, too!
I am a designer and this bored me. Give it a miss.
The Blue Print Cafe is just inside and a great way to finish off a day of culture with a great meal.
Not the easiest museum to get to, but worth the trek. Interesting exhibitions, extremely creative.
Be warned, the shop closes at the same time as the exhibitions, get to the shop early to avoid disappointment.
go n see john pawson show
Erm. . . sorry, not worth 8.50 !
Great building with very interesting exhibitions !
Just opened 'Hello, my name is Paul Smith' is a beautiful exhibition for those who like design and fashion. Great inspiration and work!
New exhibition on 3d printing - The Future is Here
Bit expensive for what it is, but the gift shop's amusing.
Spend some time at the shop, great books and gifts!
Check out the talks which go on here some evenings. Usually very good value and by well known design practitioners. Worth going to.
Skim side room of Adjaye's "Urban Africa" to spend more time in the central room with the large projections...
Good for lunch not so good as a museum. Went there today.
Another London museum, here you'll find a mix of clothe design, furniture design, they have a little section dedicated to how the red cabins were created, London Olympic Games.
Enjoyed the top floor's interactive exhibit about design. Close to Tower Bridge & food venues.
Whatever is on here, it's worth the trip. The shop too is stuffed with cool (often expensive) things. But where else will you find electric paint?
Worthwhile, mind-expanding stop on an walk with endless interest along the Thames
The "Woman Fashion Power" exhibition is amazing
Rather small museum but with interesting special exhibitions and a fantastic bookstore
We were a bit disappointed
My favourite place in the whole of London. Great Museum and been a member for the last 10 years. Will miss Shad though when the Museum moves.

Second floor was open for renovation when I visited. It's a fairly small place.
I hate to be a negative Nancy, but it's kind of underwhelming compared to New York Design Museum.
They have some amazingly great products in the shop from Keepcups to Raspi's to many more gadgets and design objects.
Small gift shop. :(
Enjoy all the new things made by designers from everywhere! And this is also a temple for Britain's evolution in the 20th century. Perfect!
Very disappointed when there is this little to see they should make it free to see.
Sooooo hard to find!
Some really cool things next to some really wanky things. Worth a visit though :-)
Amazing museum. Enjoyed the place
Симпатично. Есть на что посмотреть.
