Once the London Design Museum will have relocated to its new location in Kensington in 2016 it will be offering its permanent collection for free.
UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne said to the press that the museum has been included in the current VAT refund scheme for museum and galleries.
Today, admission to the museum which sits on the River Thames costs £12.40 for adults. The new site will be the Kensignton building. It will have three times more space for its collection and temporary exhibitions. The museum likewise expects visitor numbers to double after the relocation.
