What is your favourite brand and why? Share your stories with us on our new interactive installation designed by artist Alex Fowkes.
16 May 2019
It’s all here… the brands and packs, posters and ads, fads and fashions, toys and games. Evocative and inspiring, it’s a kaleidoscope of images and iconic brands. Featuring over 12,000 original items you will discover how well-loved brands evolved through their creative use of packaging and advertising – and how we evolved with them. The history of consumer culture is revealed decade by decade in our Time Tunnel, from the Victorian era until today.
Odette Toilette and flavourist Steve Pearce invite your tastebuds to discover the art and science of flavourings.

Make your summer party one to remember with exclusive hire of the Museum of Brands. Perfectly located in the heart of Notting Hill, we are ready to welcome you for a casual summer gathering or a retro picnic with your colleagues and clients.

Compiled by Robert Opie, founder of the Museum of Brands, the series of 10 Scrapbooks provides a vivid insight into consumer culture and the ways that brands have evolved over time. Each scrapbook offers an evocative decade-specific catalogue of everyday visual culture, spanning from the Victorian era right up to the 1970s. Every purchase directly supports the Museum charity.
