There is not a lot to see in this museum, which is the former garage space of the building. However, what IS there is interesting and educational. There are very descriptive signs to accompany the photos around the museum, and there are a few samples...More

The Isokon Gallery, currently open on weekends (Lawn Road, Hampstead/London) is part of a development created in 1934: at the heart of the dwelling was the attempt to provide the right environment for minimalist urban living. The small Gallery explains the history, use of materials...More
