  • The concept is quite novel and the museum has put in a lot of effort in to collecting historical packaging and advertising material . Apart from just giving the history of London I expected the museum...  more »
  • Small friendly Museum in Notting Hill. There are old toys, typewriters, phones and packaging of products we know dating from the beginning of the 1900s to date. We're amazed at the number of packages which we had... it's not getting younger. The only small problem, this museum is out of the way and suddenly the metro is more expensive.

  • Fascinating at a surface level. Did display some examples for brand development over the years but could have gone into a lot more depth about how any why a brands is developed in a certain way. Also would have been interesting to know what happened to some of the old brands. Why did they disappear especially if they had value.
  • It was interesting, albeit small and possibly not worth how much they charge for a ticket. Giving it three stars because of their INCREDIBLY unfriendly and rude staff members at the ticket desk, yesterday.
  • Sad reflection on our society that a perfectly good building us handed over to a museum of borring packaging when it could have been a great community centre with a lovely hidden garden at the back of the building.
  • It's a cool place if you are in to brands. Small Museum but has all the old and new brands such as Nestlé, Cadbury, Coca Cola.. I really enjoy my visit, the staff very friendly. The gift shop is cool and we'll priced.
  • Truly a brilliant display of all things to do with branding and display. A visual treat like no other.
