Sir Terence Conran inspired museum 'demonstrates the social, cultural and economic reasons for design'. This is a great place to give your children a fun introduction to design. All the exhibits are very accessible and there is a Free Family Trail that can be picked up from the admissions desk. With the help of 'The Thinkerer' kids and adults, can get the most from their visit to the museum.

On Sunday afternoons there is a 'Design and Make' workshop at the stunning riverside studio where children can work with a team of designers to create there own exhibits.

This museum is slowly, steadily becoming a must-see London landmark, tucked in the very hip neighbourhood of Shad Thames.
