Design Museum Review
This was the first museum in the U.K. to place everyday contemporary objects in a social and cultural context and consider their role in the history of design. Furniture, digital technology, and domestic products from the museum's permanent collection are on display (some visitors feel the ordinariness of the objects does not justify the high admission price), while temporary exhibitions focus on leading individual designers ranging from Charles Eames and Isamu Noguchi to Terence Conran and Christian Louboutin, or on themes such as Sport and Design. The first half of 2015, for example, sees an exhibition on power dressing co-curated by noted fashion historian Colin McDowell. Workshops, courses, and family days enliven the museum for children. If you're in need of refeuling, the Blueprint Café (designed by Conran) offers a river terrace with superb views. For quicker snacks at a lower price, the museum has its own café on the ground floor. Entry to both cafés and the museum store is free.
