The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising opened in London’s Notting Hill in November 2005 and grew out of the collection of consumer historian Robert Opie, who began by saving a packet of Munchies chocolate at the age of 16. His collection now has around 300,000 items.
It takes about an hour to meander through the Museum’s Time Tunnel and it was so much fun! I kept saying, “Ooh, I remember that!” There is everything you could possibly imagine related to consumerism on display and there is something for all ages. 🙂
The Boy and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this museum – it’s quirky, entertaining and informative, and worth a few hours of your time if you happen to be at a loose end in West London.
