The museum is 90% just a collection of toys, boxes, cans, packaging, etc. It does not feature advertising heavily at all. Additionally, the packages are presented along a timeline with very little information, context, etc. You are just looking at a wall/display that contains 100s...More

Visited this interesting Museum with my new friend on a Saturday which cost £9.50 entrance fee. The brands start from the late 19th to the early 20th century with Queen Victoria, through to today. You are taken through a snaking, winding corridor like journey at...More
