This museum is to be recommended for several reasons - an excellent display of items which bring back many memories through the evolution of packaging, advertising and design. It's amazing to see how many products have changed without you being aware of it. From a...More

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.

Great place to go and kill roughly 1 - 1.5 hours, taking a journey back in time to see the brands and packaging from way back. It was great when, during the walk through, you slowly begin to recognise and reminisce about some of the...More

Really surprised by this little treasure tucked away in West London. It's both educational and training-led, as there are courses available too for people interested in Marketing. In addition, it's a trip down Memory Lane.

A lovely trip down memory lane, so many artefacts from my childhood. Lovely sandwiches and chocolate brownies. The garden is a tranquil escape after a walk through the Portobello Road Market. Would highly recommend a visit.

As most reviews have stated there is an abundance of memories when walking through the museum, looking at the labels, magazines, photos, games etc. I would say its over priced for what you get compared to the fabulous museum's in and around outer London which...More

Visited mid June, and thought there were many "no photography" symbols in the timeline section.. Also not much distance between exhibition cases, and you would be photographing through glass.
