Support the museum

The Design Museum is a registered charity generating 98% of its operating budget from admissions, retail, charitable donations and sponsorship.

Creating the new museum was a hugely ambitious undertaking and one which would have not been 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.
