After a few setbacks and much anticipation, the Design Museum finally re-opened in its new premises last year – and boy, is it looking flash these days. Now located in the Grade II-listed former Commonwealth Institute building on Kensington High Street, it now boasts three times the space and has an archive, library, two shops and a permanent collection.

Lovely building and location to visit! It is a little expensive though in terms of the size of the exhibition. The shop is a highlight!
Just two floors of this building are for exhibitions. When we visited one floor was given over to contemporary jewelry, which was mostly pretentious or pornographic. The other exhibition was exactly what you would expect from a Design Museum. It showcased and explained brilliant design extremely well, it left us hungry for more - but there was no more. The little coffee area, the shop and the location are great, it's just a shame there wasn't more museum.
