Close to Portobello Road in Notting Hill, the Museum explores how brands shape, and are shaped by, people culture and society. The exhibits tell a fascinating story of how everyday lives have changed during the past 150 years. Discover the evolution of travel and transport, entertainment and leisure, toys and games, and the arrival of hundreds of new brands that have made life easier and more convenient.
