Featuring over 12,000 original items from the unique Robert Opie Collection, discover how well-loved brands evolved through their creative use of packaging and advertising – and how we evolved with them.
Located just around the corner from the world-famous Portobello Road Market in London, the Museum is treasure trove of retro packaging design.
The history of consumer culture is revealed decade by decade in our ‘time tunnel’, from the naive charm of the Victorian era to the sophistication of today.
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.
