The Design Museum has announced that it has booked 10,000 advance tickets for its new exhibition that opened on 31st July 2020. Originally due to open on April 1 the opening of the exhibition was delayed by Covid-19 and the subsequent closure of the museum. With a finale that transports you to heart of the dancefloor – set to The Chemical Brothers 2019 anthem Got To Keep On – the exhibition is a safe way to sample the club culture that is currently missing from our nightlife.

Tim Marlow, Chief Executive and Director said:

“This exhibition has already generated the largest number of advance tickets booked for a show at the museum. Audiences are clearly ready to make the journey for this exceptional exhibition and its immersive soundtracks, installations, rare objects, artworks and ephemera. It’s wonderful to see that people are prioritising culture in these uncertain times and that they are keen to connect with a hardcore celebration of design and creativity. We are so grateful to our audience for keeping on with us.”

About the Design Museum:
The Design Museum is the world’s leading museum devoted to contemporary architecture and design. Its work encompasses all elements of design, including fashion, product and graphic design. Since it opened its doors in 1989 the museum has displayed everything from an AK-47 to high heels designed by Christian Louboutin. It has staged over 100 exhibitions, welcomed over seven million visitors and showcased the work of some of the world’s most celebrated designers and architects including Paul Smith, Zaha Hadid, Jonathan Ive, Frank Gehry, Eileen Gray and Dieter Rams. On 24 November 2016, The Design Museum relocated to Kensington, west London. Leading architect John Pawson converted the interior of an iconic 1960s modernist building to create a new home for The Design Museum giving it three times more space in which to show a wider range of exhibitions and significantly extend its learning programmes.
