I visited this museum in December and have told lots of people about it since as I thought it was really great. Very nostalgic. A hidden gem. Staff very friendly and welcoming.It takes you right back to your childhood seeing all the familiar items and products of all the decades. Do visit it.

Fantastic collection! As a graphic designer, it was very useful to see the history told through the daily objects, packaging and brands.

Had an hour or so to kill before my planned visit to the Ginstitute so popped in here. I had visited the museum when it was based in Gloucester many years ago so knew more or less what to expect. I wasn't disappointed and enjoyed a veritable trip down memory lane back to my childhood. I particularly enjoyed the parts which highlighted how the brands had developed and the inclusion of some great old radio displays rounded it all off. A great experience, well worth the detour.

A gem and must-see for any self-respecting marketing student! It is packed up with wonderful stuff to see and many historical extracts, brand-related and just fun. You can see the history of development of many brands, which is a fascinating sight!

There is a small entrance fee, discounts for students, and in the end they also give you a voucher for another visit (2 for 1). There is also a sweet tea shop and some funky souveniers, some memorable things you'd definitely love to carry out.

Unfortunately, no photos to be taken.
