📺 I have always wanted to visit The Museum of Brands as I LOVE the history of brands, I find it fascinating!
The Museum of Brands is like a time machine. You go through a time tunnel from Victorian times through to the present date, and the cabinets are filled with items from the different decades. Chocolate bars, toys, adverts, drinks.
It’s incredible to see how brands and products looked in the olden days, and how a shop would have been set up. Tyler was entranced by the 1930s London Underground board game – yes there was a game back then!!
In the summer holidays there was a Mr Men special, with a trail starting from the 1970s section – which kept it interesting for the kids, trying to find the answers to the questions.
Depending on your age, the 80s and 90s cabinets are great as you try to find items from your childhood.
At the end of the trail is a room dedicated to packaging and this is where the crafting area is. Here the kids made Mr Bump figures.
There’s a lovely cafe with a gorgeous garden area, loos and baby change, and a gift shop.
My children enjoyed seeing household items from the past, finding the ‘modern’ TVs amusing and recognising confectionery brands and toys.
I’d say under 5s MIGHT get restless here, this museum is better for school age children. And even for adults to come without children, there were couples on dates here when we visited! It’s one of those where you want to take your time and look at all the branded products. It’s really interesting 🤩
What’s your favourite brand from your childhood? Mine is Woolworths and Barbie 😄
