This was the first museum in the United Kingdom 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—and some visitors feel the ordinariness of the objects does not justify the high admission price. Temporary exhibitions focus on leading individual designers, such as Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi, Terence Conran, or Christian Louboutin, or on themes such as Sport and Design. Workshops, courses, and family days enliven the museum for children. If you're in need of refueling, 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. Note that the museum will be closing in mid-2016 before reopening in Kensington in late 2016.
