Expérience fantastique: 최고였습니다 It’s the best. Especially, Designer Maker User exhibition was so amazing. I want to give 10 stars. I was thankful that I could see this exhibition for free.

Expérience fantastique: Surprisingly remarkable. This place might not be a tourist spot but the museum should be one. You'll have a nostalgia when seeing stuff like walkman and other vintage machine here.

Expérience fantastique: Went to the “Football Designing the Beautiful Game” exhibition & it was overall fantastic with a good set of memorabilia from 100+ years of football history. Loved the World Cup posters on display not to mention the shirts of Pele, Diego Maradona, Zico, Roberto Baguio & Michel Platini which were sensational. There was a Liverpool bias as no other English club side’s memorabilia was on display.

Expérience fantastique: Great space for exhibitions. Two main exhibitions when I was there, waste and sneakers. Lots of other smaller exhibits. The waste was very interesting and fun. Several children there seemed enthralled by some of the things on show. Lots of recycling ideas and strange statistics. NB best to book and pay for the waste exhibition online. The exhibition about Ami Winehouse was great respectively of you like her music. There were some playing the whole time with video. Lots of interesting artifacts including her Juke box and many dresses. With a visit.

Expérience fantastique: Brilliant. Interesting free exhibits. The ASMR exhibition is totally absorbing (though as I'm into ASMR I didn't need convincing). Lively little cafe with nice, if limited, choice of cakes and heavenly Assam tea. Fab book shop.

Expérience fantastique: This is an excellent museum that covers how the things we use were designed, and the evolution in the design of items from early versions to the present day. It was great to see some of the old tech from our past! The building itself is a work of art once you are inside. It took us around 1.5-2 hours to make our way around. It's mostly on one floor and not that large but there is a lot to see. The exhibits have a fair amount of text associated with them. So I would not say this is the best place for very young children. There are other exhibits on which may have a cost. When we went, there was a free exhibit on the technology that could help us as we get older which was thought provoking. There are lockers, water fountains, toilets, coffee shop, and the most expensive gift shop I have seen for some time. Very different things in it from the norm, but even still it felt expensive. I recommend a visit to the next door holland park which was very enjoyable. The museum is definitely worth a visit.

Expérience fantastique: Loved it. The displays were absolutely amazing. It's clear that people have a connection to many objects on display and it was nice to stand and talk to other people about their memories. A real gem

Expérience fantastique: Like many other museums, you can spend as little or as much time as you like in here, with a ground or on your own. It's got a modern feel, mostly a younger demographic and a really board range of exhibitions that constantly change, from fashion, football, visual design and many more. If you are a member you can do without booking but if you are not worth booking a timeslot and purchase tickets beforehand!

Expérience fantastique: As a creative student at UAL - being exposed to tons of museums and exhibitions, my first visit to this place had been one of my favourite to be at! I love the interior, felt very modern and homely, comfy places to sit and eat with a range of artefacts to look at. With my booking to see the 'ASMR' exhibition (not included in photos - to see for yourself) I was truly immersed and impressed by the curation and interaction of the works. The experience must be seen for yourself! I loved the spacing of the works, they have many floors and so spacious!

Expérience fantastique: The permanent collection of the the Museum It's not too big but interesting. Most of the space in the museum it's actually dedicated to temporary exhibition. The shop is filled with design books.

Kaushani Majumder 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Had a couple of brilliant exhibits on display and the best thing: they were free entry. The collection at the museum is a must visit for any designer irrespective of their discipline and there is a good focus on sustainable and ethical design throughout the experience. Massive plus was the lovely merch shops with equally beautiful items you could pick up if you had some money to spare. Completely recommend spending an afternoon here!

Expérience fantastique: Such a great immersion into the world of design. They've done an amazing job walking with 3 design thinking process. So many cool exhibits really love the sustainable fashion exhibit And the technology innovation exhibit. I brought my innovation by design class here and they are just loving it it's bringing to life everything we've been talking about in class.

Expérience fantastique: Amazing exhibition. They have everything from typography to road signs to electronics to fashion to furniture. The most complete collection that represents design from every angle that I‘ve seen so far! They also have a cafe and lots of tables where you can sit with laptop and do some work in relative quietness & with wifi. And all of that absolutely for free!

Expérience fantastique: Beautifully designed building, with it's two arching pillar supports it really opens up this whole space. There are two special exhibitions on the design of Football and ASMR which I didn't visit. But the free exhibitions, particularly the Design/ Maker/User on the second floor took me back in time to such things like Sony Walkman, iPods and Typewriters. The broad message I picked up from this exhibition is how design permeates every aspect of our lives. The Bethany Williams exhibition on the 1st floor wasn't as interesting for me, but I can appreciate the great work she has inspired using recycled materials and working with local communities and charities.

Expérience fantastique: Visited for the football exhibition which I thoroughly enjoyed. Well curated and excellent subject matter. Felt the right size to hold my attention. The space is interesting as well. Unable to comment on other exhibitions but one to revisit depending what is exhibiting.

Expérience fantastique: I went to the Fred Perry Exhibition. It was one of a kind. (I wished the polos were on auction :P) Moreover, it has many other free permanent exhibitions that are a must visit. The museum is silent and one feels such a peace of mind. I love the way it is designed. They have a souvenir shop and a cafe too! I never tried those. Plus, a park nearby to chill on a sunny day :)

Emine Bir 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: The building it self is very beautiful and it is a nice place to kill a couple of hours with a nice gift shop and cafeteria. The free exhibition is on basic concepts of design and could be very informative for children and teenagers as an adult with art degree there was nothing new for me. I would recommend it to families.

Expérience fantastique: This museum is what I would call a niche museum as it displays innovative creatives which have won some acknowledgement or accreditation.Some displays were thought provoking. Has facilities for the disabled.

Expérience fantastique: Such a great place to learn about the history of design and its impact on the world. All hosted under a beautifully constructed building, and free.

Tristan Torgersen 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Great museum with a good free portion and exhibits that charge an entry fee as well. Loved the displays on brands and branding, and enjoyed the London Tube portion. Lots to give you new ideas and see the world in a new light.

Expérience fantastique: A modern museum over four floors off Kensington High Street by the entrance to Holland Park. The top two floors are free to visit, with the exhibition on the top floor having been there for some years but worth seeing if you haven't been before. The lower floors have temporary exhibitions which you pay to see - we saw the football one which was fascinating even if you are not particularly interested in football. The staff here were very helpful and on two occasions approached us to ask if we had any questions. There is a small cafe with good coffee and a limited menu on the ground floor, however it is a pity that the Searcy's restaurant which was on the 2nd flor terrace has closed due to lack of custom. One minor thing to note is that I made contactless payments for the exhibition and the cafe, and both transactions came up with confusing narrative on my account, though the amounts were correct.

Martin Spurway 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: A great place to visit for designers with a good mixture of paid exhibits and permanent free collections. My favourite part was the designer maker collection, after seeing so many of the objects in design books it's great to finally see that stuff in the flesh. A nice location with good gardens, shop and cafe. Well worth a visit if you are in the Kensington area.

Expérience fantastique: Amazing !! The Design Museum is by far my favourite I studied product design and now work in product design so to see a place full of amazing design and products was truly inspiring! cant wait to come back for exhibitions, unfortunately I live in Liverpool so it probably won't be too often :(

Expérience fantastique: I’ve visited this museum several times and this time I found the designing of football Exhibition. It was interesting and a lot of new information I didn’t know before I really encourage everyone to visit this museum even if they didn’t see this exhibition they should see the main exhibition which is about design in general and it’s amazing.

Saania Beg 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: The museum is just amazing. The tour guides were super informative. The museum is designed in a way that you walk thorough the museum and you can notice how various designs of things actually evolved over the many years of various time periods that are displayed in the museum. Loved the subtleties of the museum. Definitely recommended.

Expérience fantastique: Small but interesting to walk around. A lot of cool displays. Although most activity tablets were not working, I still would recommend to spend an hour at the museum. The cafe was lovely with nice blueberry muffins and decent selection of tea.

Amy Mason 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Fascinating. Went for help with my Product Design A level. Found loads of stuff for my A level Product Design which is great. Building is gorgeous. The architecture is stunning. Staff were lovely. Had a great time. Not the biggest museum in London but definite significant enough. Would suggest looking at the paid exhibits if you are interested in them. They are put together really well!! Would go back…

Romano Carneletto 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: This was a surprisingly nostalgic experience. The museum of design really documents very well consumer trends and product innovation developed over the last century. From the humble peg to the latest 3D printer no iconic invention has been overlooked. The architecture of the space is playful and inventive. This is a great place to come visit for a couple of hours.

Expérience fantastique: I attended the Amy exhibition on the opening day and it was wonderful. I'll definitely be back before it much to see. The staff at the museum were friendly and polite and the museum itself very well run. Very impressed

Duncan Latimer 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Took a visit with the family, wasn't expecting my 8 year old girl to get much from it but was proven wrong. Really sleek architecture and nice open museum, not overly large too and was able to see all free exhibitions within 2 hours, came out feeling we had seen enough and that we didn't miss too much. As can be expected a well designed museum, layout, pace, interactive pieces that work and a great looking building with a beautifully clean and functional form.

Expérience fantastique: In my opinion this is an excellent museum, one of the best in Britain. The building is fantastic. Everything is design. It worth several visits, absolutely amazing.

Anastasia Kireeva 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: I really enjoyed the exhibition "Waste Age", learned a lot of cool things from it. The exhibition is very well arranged and has lots of things, including the waste timeline, the history of plastic, the design solutions in architecture, interior design, clothing, packaging and lots more

Nuria Sarah Pinder 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: The building is just breathtaking! The collection and exhibition has been carefully curated and we very much enjoyed how the space was designed to appreciate all the artifacts. Free for all and accessible to wheelchairs and prams. Enjoy a nice cup of tea afterwards at Balans or pair up with a reservation at Gordon Ramsay's burger joint close by!

Expérience fantastique: Sadly I discovered this museum too late to take my time with it and explore all of it, but if you can, do it. Not only is the building itself worth the time (since it has an amazing atmosphere with the interesting roof shape and being clad completely in wood that even smells good) but the exhibitions are really inspiring! Also, there two museum shops if you're looking for some gifts, posters or keepsakes.

Samrudha Dixit 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Well curated and beautiful space to explore for design students, educators and professionals. Enough space and objects to hold discussions and view things up close and in detail.

Ludovica Roselli 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Very interesting exhibit and wonderfully presented. Even on a sunday, we 'pre'booked our tickets two minutes before going in, so not too crowded and suitable for a last minute visit. The shop was fill of interesting books, posters and miscellaneous museum paraphernalia but it was all so ridiculously expensive, I didn't bother (£35 for a small print?!). Some of the books for sale there are available on Amazon for half the price. Would come back again for future exhibits. They have a significant discount for students so something to keep in mind.
