The Design Museum

Established in 1989 and moved to Kensington in 2016, the Design Museum holds Britain’s best permanent collection of world-leading consumer product design. The inspiration of the late Sir Terence Conran, the museum was awarded European Museum of the Year in 2018. The astounding new interior complements the Grade 2* architecture of the 1960s building – the original home of the Commonwealth Institute. The following pictures show the central atrium and selected exhibits of the permanent ‘Designer, Maker, User’ collection.
