Excellent for researchers about brands, students or just curious. This is a small museum, but with a great collection.
Worth one visit, just to stroll down memory lane. For such a small museum, you wouldn't think it would take 45 minutes but it does.The corridors twist and turn with a constant display of packaging and branding through the ages, starting in the Victorian days, passing through the Wars and rationing, ending up in the present.
I took my first year business degree students and the museum helped them understand some of the work that we have been doing on branding and packaging. Recommended!
Great value for money. Looks tiny from outside, but once inside sheer delight. A trip down memory lane for all ages. Chloe loved it.
Charming little museum with entrance for £6.50. It shows the development of brands and advertising through the ages and the development of packaging, which on the surface sounds dull but brings back nostalgia and intrigue as the exhibitions develop. Some amazing items and great for any product design/stage management students for references

At first we weren`t sure we were at the right place, but then saw the Museum sign at the far end; and then saw the mass of `youth` that was... More
We are from Canada, so many of the products were similar, but it was such fun to see the changes through the ages! Nice displays, helpful staff.

The name sounds boring & we only went because we had a bogof voucher, but so glad we did! It was a real trip down memory lane, food, sweets, toys, household items, all in chronological order & so many that we had forgotten. Only grumble was that it was not very well sign posted and we did take a little... More
I went to this Museum in Notting Hill with my boyfriend during August 2013. We are from Italy. I'm very fond of vintage packaging and my boyfriend works with advertising...so we found this place really brilliant! We also were able to use our 2x1 entrance ticket with rail tickets and the guy at the reception was really patient in helping... More
I would recommend a visit to the Museum of Brands, Packaging & Advertising. It's interesting seeing how products were advertised & how brands have progressed throughout the years. It also provides a nostalgic look at products of yesteryear. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit & have recommended it to friends & family.
