Unique offer

The Design Museum is located in a unique landmark from the 1960s, a Grade II* listed building that had stood vacant for over a decade. The former 1960s building has been transformed by a design team led by John Pawson who have made this architectural icon fit for a 21st century museum, while retaining its unique spatial quality.

What's on offer?

Add value to your event and offer your guests a unique experience with an exhibition private view, a guided tour or beautiful gifts from the Design Museum Shop.
