The Museum of Brands, Packaging & Advertising
This small museum hidden away in Notting Hill has thousands of examples of everyday packaging and other everyday items. The museum records the British way of life over the past 100 years and how it has changed through the evolution of consumer brands, showing how they have had to evolve to keep up with changes in society, fashion and technology. Visitors are immediately drawn to the decade of their childhood, recognising sweet wrappers and toys as they remember them.
'The Museum of Brands, Packaging & Advertising not only tells us the incredible story of our consumer society, but also revives our own memories placing us in the context of history - of which we are all a part.'
