In 2016 the Design Museum moved to the site in Kensington formerly occupied by the Commonwealth Institute, incorporating its notable parabolic roof into a new building.
The museum covers product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design. It was founded in 1989 on a site in Bermondsey, by Tower Bridge.
