The Design Museum
"The Design Museum is the only place in the UK where the design industry, education and the public can come together to change the way people think about themselves and the future. The museum is a registered charity founded in 1989. It relocated to a spectacular modern landmark in Kensington in 2016 and has welcomed over one and a half million visitors since re-opening."
