COVID-19 Secure Events at the Design Museum

As we navigate through the challenges Coronavirus (COVID-19) has presented, the Design Museum is carefully following government guidelines to deliver its activities.

Following the latest COVID restrictions, the museum will remain closed to the general public until further notice.

A limited number of essential activity is permitted, as set out on the government website.

So what can businesses do?

TV and film production, photoshoots and broadcasting are permitted under the current government guidelines.


Whilst events have been put on pause, planning your next event doesn’t have to. The Design Museum Events Team are on hand to discuss your future plans.

Professional film and TV production are allowed at permitted venues. Please click below for further guidance.
