Support the museum

The Design Museum is a registered charity generating more than 95% of its operating budget from admissions, retail, charitable donations and sponsorship. Creating the new museum is a hugely ambitious undertaking and one which would not be possible without the support of the Arts Council, Trusts and Foundations, companies and individuals. Help us create the most inspiring and engaging Design Museum in the world.
