Located on the banks of the Thames, the Design <br />Museum has two floors and showcases <br />contemporary design in all forms, including <br />fashion, graphic and architectural. <br /><br />There are two main galleries, and the <br />collections trace the history of design <br />developments, from the origins of mass <br />production to contemporary works. <br /><br />This was the first museum in the world <br />to focus on the exhibition of mass-produced <br />items and today boasts a celebrated <br />collection of everyday objects from the <br />20th and 21st centuries. <br /><br /> The objects relate to engineering, <br />technology, furniture, fashion and architecture. <br />Housed in a 1950s building re-designed by <br />the Conran Group, the museum lies just <br />downriver of Butler's Wharf and the old <br />spice-importing warehouses. <br /><br />And, if you start to get peckish during <br />your visit, the Blue Print Cafe on the first <br />floor overlooking the river is a bit of a treat.
