Design Museum Easy to get to? Good for kids? Value for money?n/a Worth a visit?103

The Design Museum was opened by Terence Conrad in an old warehouse on Butler’s Wharf, Shad Thames. It now showcases the best in 20th and 21st-century design.

The museum includes everything from classic designs like the Coke bottle, to sports cars, kid’s toys and furniture. It also has a great display of… kitchen appliances and office equipment. (You’ll never look at a stapler the same way again.)

The first floor Review Gallery showcases contemporary designs and technology from around the world.
