Venue hire at Design Museum

 

Design Museum

Hire this venue for your own event - it has three function rooms the largest of which can hold a maximum of 400 guests and the smallest is ideal for 50.

Located on the banks of the Thames, the Design Museum has two floors and showcases contemporary design in all forms, including fashion, graphic and architectural. There are two main galleries, and the collections trace the history of design developments, from the origins of mass production to contemporary works. This was the first museum in the world to focus on the exhibition of
mass-produced items and today boasts a celebrated collection of
everyday objects from the 20th and 21st centuries. While the items
allow visitors to reminisce about the past, the Design Museum also
provides an opportunity to examine innovative prototypes for the
future. The objects relate to engineering, technology, furniture,
fashion and architecture. Housed in a 1950s building re-designed by the
Conran Group, the museum lies just downriver of Butler's Wharf and the
old spice-importing warehouses. And, if you start to get peckish during your visit, the Blue Print Cafe on the first floor overlooking the river is a bit of a treat.
