We opened in Gloucester in 1984, moved to London in 2005, and are now a top 10 London attraction.
Just around the corner from the world-famous Portobello Road Market stands a treasure trove of retro design and memories.
Imagine walking through galleries full to the brim with oddities and wonders alike, where every corner you turn leads you into a different decade.
You’ll see Rimmel cosmetics from the 1890s, First World War Oxo Cubes, Mars Bars, Rolos and KitKats from the 1930s, a 1970s Chopper Bike and around 12,000 other items that will open your eyes to the way we lived and shopped.
The Museum was founded in 1984 by consumer historian Robert Opie.
