Relocated in 2016 from its former home on the side of the Thames, near Tower Bridge, the new-and-improved building is both an awe-inspiring presence and also a trove of the world's finest design.

I really want to like this building. It is well presented with impressive spaces. However, it just doesn't seem to fit its purpose. The galleries leading up to the permanent collection seems strangely vacant, and disjointed. The permanent collection itself has lovely content, but is unfortunately squeezed in pop-up like spaces, when there are so much seemlingly unused pockets of space within the building.
While slightly difficult to get to compared to the majority of the major museums in London, it's in a lovely setting, and should plan a day's event around it to enjoy the parks and Kensington High Street.
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.
