London attractions: Unravel the history of your favourite products at the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising
Published: Friday 22nd of March 2013
If you have ever wondered about the history behind your favourite box of cereal, or how your mobile phone came to be, then you are likely to be fascinated by this museum.
Few people realise the influence that brands and marketing have on our lives and so much of what we buy and consume can be traced back to an advert or marketing campaign.
But really, it is more than that. More often than not, the products we buy and use are associated with certain memories and nostalgia about the past.
Well there is hardly a better place to reminisce than this attraction, which features over 12,000 original items from magazines, brands, sweets and many more. Many date back to the Victorian times and continue right up until the present day.
So if you want to raise your awareness of consumer goods, then this museum is a good place to start.
