A very nicely laid out exhibition of the works of Stanley Kubrik. The exhibition gives a very detailed history of Kubrik's films, explains the background and various aspects of his work.

Spent a good couple of hours at the Stanley Kubrick exhibition. Really well set up and very interesting. I think it’s still on? If you’re a fan then go.

This isn't a huge museum but what they pack into the site is really interesting - fascinating in fact as remembering items that you see and the innovation that has gone into them is quite amazing.

Visited the wonderful Kubrick exhibition at this brilliant museum. Thought we’d only be here for a couple of hours, ended up being there for almost six.

What a great exhibition of Stanley Kubrick‘s films at The Design Museum. Went with my oldest son who is a videographer and we both loved it. Spent two hours but could easily have spent the double amount of time there. Was really well set up...More

As a huge Kubrick fan I had this exhibition opening in my calendar with the plan to go within the opening week. I eventually managed to get to the design museum around August only to find out that the exhibition was selling out 5-6 days...More

Free admission for the permanent exhibition. Most interesting for those interested in design but lots of great history on the design of popular items from Apple and Sony.

There was a place to chain a bike outside and the lockers are very large so could possibly fit a foldable bike in. I think you’ll be fine.

The free exhibition whilst cleverly, but confusingly arranged, seems to have very little content, compared to other museums in the area. I don’t know what their agenda is, but it’s not provide a comprehensive chronological... More
