As a follow up to the visit we made to The Tate Modern the Geezers went up West to the Design Museum.
224-238 Kensington High Street is the new home of The Design Museum. The nearest tube is Kensington Olympia. We thought it was brilliant. Admission is free to approximately half of the exhibits. But there are two special exhibitions. One is about the sensations sound can trigger in you Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, with adult tickets costing around £10. The other is Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design 1924 – Today which costs a whopping £16.80 full price. If you’ve got an Art Fund Card it will get you 50% off.
We took a lot of photos in the exhibition before moving on to more recognisable items that a lot of us have owned and used over the years.
The museum was wheel chair friendly, and loaned us one for our visit.
After the visit to the museum we went exploring and found this most excellent pub, The Churchill Arms.
We would like to thank Richard Jory for arranging the visit and for his help on the day.
We will be heading up West again later in the year.
