I was cycling past Tower Bridge the other day so I went to visit the old Design Museum.
I don't think the Blue Print Cafe are a big fan of the move to Kensington.
Low hum of critics of the Design Museum, that its not that well designed, but this is good interview with a good man https://t.co/MrpFTPiyfM— Clive Grinyer (@clivegrinyer) February 18, 2017
Clive is right, there are critics of the new Design Museum but this a good interview with a good man.
The Design Museum has had a quarter of a million visitors since it opened. Not bad for less than three months. https://t.co/NyVU6Jobjo— Justin McGuirk (@justinmcguirk) February 16, 2017
Some things about the new museum are obviously a great success. The museum is attracting a lot of visitors, in three months it has welcomed more visitors than it used to get in a whole year. That's good news.
I generally agree that the exhibits feel tucked away in dark spaces, but it's early days. Too early to call it a success or a failure IMHO.
