Amazing museum in Holland park. Permanent exhibition is free, special exhibitions charge a fee. The permanent exhibition is interesting, well-curated and easy to follow. The building housing the exhibitions is simply stunning and worth visiting on its own. Highly recommend to visit with school kids as the exhibition is fairly short and there is lots of open space to enjoy. Not overly crowded even on weekends.
Design museum is great. The building is fantastic from both the inside and outside. They usually have one large exhibit on the top floor and so it's not too big and can be seen in an hour or so. They have a nice cafe as well as a book store and gift store with cool stuff. There is an auditorium in the basement and they'll often have good speakers come in.
