This Design Museum is mostly free to the public. There is a schedule full of different cultural activities for everyone: free design workshops, conferences, exhibitions and special installations. The assistants are on hand to help with drawing, making, and building an abstract paper city. Other options include interacting with Bare Conductive sensor technology, to help visitors generate their own soundscapes and audio, or learn more about classic design icons. There are many workshops, some for young people, for kids, and families. All materials are provided by the organisation.

Other conferences by famous architects and designers like Morag Myerscough and Roger Cunliffe will also take place at the Museum.
