Fantastic architecture. Free exhibition plus two temporary exhibitions you have to pay to enter. A fine museum, but not a full day out worth. And with some of the other 5 star museums and galleries in London, I can only give this one 4 stars.

4.0/ 5stars

Great building in terms of its form, but as with many mid century architectural showpieces it's lacking a functional presence, it's not a space suited to a museum, even when in its former life as the Commonwealth Inst. it had a great promise but didn't really deliver. Current exhibitions fail to excite but maybe it will 'find itself' and become more engaging in time. Worth visiting for the building, it will make you wonder what better uses it might have.

The Design Museum has different and very well curated exhibitions on various design topics. The space in general is interesting to navigate and discover the various exhibitions. I ended up spending a lot of time at the bookstore as well, where I found a lot of interesting books I had been looking for before. A very well spent afternoon.

The permanent exhibit is free and cover a wide range of design topics. The building is of historical and architectural importance having previously been the commonwealth institute, it has a great parabolic roof and the interior has been recently restored and the layout changed somewhat. The temporary exhibits can be quite pricey but are usually interesting and well curated.

Great place to take kids, the top floor has really interactive and free displays. There is also a common room where you can eat your own packed lunches and they do activities. This afternoon they had a great badge making activity.
