  • This museum is a fascinating place to visit. You travel through a 'time tunnel' starting with the Victorian era right through to modern times. All exhibits are very well arranged with not too much tex...  read more »

  • It is a small museum full of packaging of products of antiquity. It's fun to remember each of the brands

  • Went to this museum for a drinks reception but I'd be keen to visit again and would definitely recommend others visit. Some more info about why designs have changed would be great as it's very visual at the moment but 100% worth a visit. Keep an eye out for the Shitler Natsee toilet roll from the 1940s!
  • What a fantastic museum. The exhibition has very different artifacts, but it is one of the very few places that are as enjoyable as the British Museum. The display runs as a time line and uses every cm of space. You see so many images that it is slightly mind altering, like a fair ground. The only downside is that photography is forbidden.
  • 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.
  • A interesting out-of-the-way museum. If you're in to packaging or understanding the history of brand development then this is a fun little museum.
  • It's very interesting to see the evolution of branding and marketing since late 1800 to our days. How products, brands, technology and customs have developed specially through some iconic brands
