The Museum of Brands has over 12,000 brands, product packets, posters, adverts, toys, games & more!

Evocative and inspiring, it’s a kaleidoscope of images and iconic brands.

Featuring original items from the Robert Opie Collection, the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising is a recent addition to the museums in London, located just off the famous Portobello Road in Notting Hill.

The history of consumer culture is revealed though household products and shopping basket favourites in the ‘time tunnel’, which charts a nostalgic journey from Victorian times to the present day. Discover how well-loved brands evolved through their creative use of packaging and advertising, and how we evolved with them.
