THE MUSEUM IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER. WE WILL REOPEN AT LARGER PREMISES AT 111-117 LANCASTER ROAD, W11 1QT IN OCTOBER
Just around the corner from the world-famous Portobello Road Market stands a unique, Aladdin's cave of retro design and memories - the only museum of its kind in the whole world. Imagine walking through a corridor full from floor to ceiling with the treats that the British have filled their shopping baskets with for the last 150 years. Every corner you turn in the Time Tunnel leads you into a different decade. Discover what has made shoppers tick for the last 200 years and surround yourself in the classic designs, vintage adverts and retro stylings that fill our museum.
The Museum is available to hire for evening events and there's a fabulous conference room for daytime events! So whether you visit to awaken childhood memories or to inspire your own designs, we welcome you to the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising.
Tuesday to Saturday: 10am - 6pm
Sunday: 11am - 5pm
Monday: Closed, except bank holidays
We are closed during the Notting Hill Carnival, 24, 25 and 26 December and New Year's Day.
Last entry is 45 minutes before closing.
