The Design Museum is the world’s leading museum devoted to architecture and design. Its work encompasses fashion, product and graphic design and is a must-see for anyone visiting London who is passionate about the subject.

Since it opened its doors in 1989, the museum has been home to everything, from an AK-47 to Christian Louboutin high heels. It has staged over 100 exhibitions, welcomed over five million visitors and showcased the work of some of the world’s most celebrated designers and architects, including Paul Smith, Zaha Hadid, Jonathan Ive, Miuccia Prada, Frank Gehry, Eileen Gray and Dieter Rams.

The Design Museum is relocating to the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington, West London, and will reopen on 24th November 2016. This new home gives the Design Museum three times more space in which to show a wider range of exhibitions and significantly extend its learning programme.
