With social distancing reducing how many people can get into museums, the Design Museum is extending its opening hours for the month of August.

This times with the reopening of the museum, but also with their delayed exhibition, Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers and the temporary installation, Fountain of Hygiene.

The flagship exhibition, is designed to appear like a nightclub and celebrates 50 years of electronic music, from BBC Radiophonic Workshop through to famously, Kraftwerk and then dance club music and the graphics that promoted them. Around 400 objects have been brought together for this exhibition.

Entry is by pre-booked tickets only, and costs £16 during the week or £18 at weekends.

The free exhibition, Fountain of hygiene topically shows of the winners in a global competition to rethink hand sanitisers. It’s free but only available to people who pay to see the Kraftwerk exhibition.

From September, opening hours will return to normal, being 10am-6pm Sun to Thur, and late to 9pm on Fri and Sat.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
