Attraction Information

Design Museum is dedicated to contemporary design in all its forms, from industrial and product design to graphics, fashion and architecture. Families are welcomed, and there are loads of brilliant activities and events on offer, meaning that there are plenty of chances to be creative and have fun together!

There is a free Family Trail available for family visitors that provides a great way to explore the museum and discover design together. These can be collected from the admissions desk when you arrive. There is always something interesting and different to see, covering a wide range of design topics that show how design is everywhere and shapes the world!

If you and the kids want to have a go at being a designer, try Create and Make, a drop-in-workshop for families that is inspired by the museum's temporary exhibitions. These informal sessions are free with museum entry and focus on design and making activities for kids aged between 5 and 11 years old. These workshops take place on the last Sunday of every month in the Learning Studio, which can be found on the second floor.

The museum also holds Family Days, a creative bonanza where the whole place is taken over by free-design activities for kids. Sign up to the newsletter to be kept up-to-date about the next Family Day, plus other exhibitions and events held during the year.
