Welcome to the Museum of Brands
A nostalgic journey through 200 years of consumer culture
Our collection takes visitors on a nostalgic journey through 200 years of social change, culture and lifestyle. It is an exciting new way of looking at history through the things that generations of families have thrown away. It’s a journey back through the memories of your childhood, all brought back to life again by our Time Tunnel – a fascinating insight into how we have lived since Victorian times.
The Time Tunnel
Explore the remarkable story of how our consumer society has evolved since Victorian times! In this journey of discovery that puts our favourite brands into their historical context, you’ll see royal coronations, two world wars, man landing on the moon and right up to the digital age!
Our Current Exhibitions
Take a walk down memory lane and discover how brands have evolved since the Victorian times – and how we evolved with them.
