the Design Museum

The Design Museum is the world's leading museum devoted to design.

Located in Kensington High Street with beautiful views over Holland Park, the museum's seven different event spaces form one of London’s most iconic contemporary events venues.

Each event space is housed under the incredible hyperbolic paraboloid roof, an original feature from this landmark Grade II* listed building’s former use as the Commonwealth Institute.

The museum is available for exclusive day time hire, allowing for more flexibility around set up times and making it ideal for larger briefs like exhibitions, filming, fashion shows, product launches and those needing the privacy of an entire takeover.

Events can also include access to the gallery spaces with exhibition tours led by our expert guides.
