A really great walk down memory lane. An absolutely brilliant display of packaging of well known and loved products, from chocolate bars to washing powder, fizzy drinks and more. You'll find something that you will recognize from years ago which will bring back lots of...More

The Museum of Brands is an interesting walk through advertising and marketing over the last 200 years. I initially expected it to be full of things from place like Cadbury and Coca Cola (who are big on marketing). However, there's something for the Commodore 64...More

This museum has a good collection of branded items from over the years, a good walk down memory lane for people of all ages! A good way to enjoy an afternoon, also near portobello market. The cafe and gardens were very nice.

This was a most enjoyable trip back in time - through packaging and brands, some familiar, some defunct. It was so interesting to see how packaging and labelling have changed over the years, particularly when the products are (or were) familiar.

Yes it's fine for slightly older children - they will enjoy seeing the toys you played with and TV programme Annuals. Plenty to talk about as you go round.
