What you'll do

Visit The Design Museum with Go City®

  • With us, there are no entry fees on the day – all you've got to do is show your pass.
  • Includes entry to all current exhibitions.

Celebrating design in all its forms, the Design Museum is a must for culture enthusiasts and aesthetic nerds alike. From fashion to architecture to graphics and industrial design, the museum's permanent and special exhibitions offer an array of examples of how design influences not only the art world but our daily lives. It was awarded European Museum of the Year 2018, so it's definitely not to be missed!

Nestled in leafy Kensington, the Design Museum's striking modern building is home to a collection of important designs that have influenced our lives. You'll learn how design has developed over the years, as well as how the modern world has shaped production and trends.

As well as a calendar of temporary exhibitions celebrating the works of world-famous designers, exploring modern or historical movements or deep-diving into various themes or styles, you can also check out some famous works and learn about popular designs in the building's main collection.

Be sure to use your pass to check out the museum's current paid exhibitions:

  • "Skateboard", the first major UK exhibition to map the design evolution of the skateboard from the 1950s to today. Open until 19th May 2024.

Please note: for Explorer pass holders, each exhibition at the Design Museum counts as one choice.
