Fodor's Review

Reopening in late 2016 in its new home—the former Commonwealth Institute, a modernist landmark—this was the first museum in the United Kingdom to place everyday contemporary objects in a social and cultural context and to consider their role in the history of design. Furniture, digital technology, and domestic products from the museum's permanent collection are on display. 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. There's also a design library and archive, two shops, a café, and a restaurant.
