The most-anticipated opening of the season is the London Design Museum. 24th November marks the date it moves from a warehouse in Shad Thames to its new Kensington home at the former Commonwealth Institute, tripling the museum's space to almost 10,000 square metres. Elsewhere, discover another dazzling addition to London’s new museum quarter (the Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums complete the quartet). Wonderlab, the latest addition to the Science Museum, is the place for 3D, hands-on encounters with the world of scientific exploration.
