The museum is devoted to contemporary design in every form.

The museum champions creative thinking and inspired problem solving, celebrating the talent of the world's best designers and architects. Since it opened in 1989 it has staged over 100 exhibitions themed around fashion, product and graphic design, showcasing the work of Paul Smith, Zaha Hadid, Miuccia Prada and Frank Gehry, among others.

The Design Museum moved from Shad Thames to Kensington in 2016. Leading architect John Pawson was behind the project, converting an old 1960s building into a striking new exhibition space.
