Moscow Design Museum

Moscow Design Museum was founded in 2012 and is the first cultural institution in Russia specifically dedicated to design. 

The museum’s founders see their main objectives to be the popularisation of national design at home and abroad, the collection and preservation of Russia’s design heritage and the introduction of Russian viewers to the best examples and main schools of international design.

The museum has successfully organised exhibition projects in some of the most prominent spaces in Russia and abroad. To further the goal of education and promotion of design the Museum is creating a series of documentary films for TV Channel “Culture.” The museum puts much effort into educational activities engaging leading European and Russian designers and design historians.

The museum focuses on the use of the latest information technologies and non-typical museological exhibiting strategies such as, for example, a mobile exhibition hall situated in a multimedia equipped bus.
