The Museum of Brands will be moving to new, larger premises at the London Lighthouse building in Notting Hill to accommodate the museum’s growth and increasing visitor numbers.
London’s Museum of Brands chronicles the history of consumer culture through design, packaging and advertising. The museum first opened in Colville Mews, Notting Hill in 2005, but as its visitor numbers have increased fourfold, the museum has now outgrown its current premises.
In July this year, the Museum of Brands will be closing its doors before reopening at the London Lighthouse Building, Lancaster Road, in September. The Lighthouse Building was formerly owned by the Terrence Higgins Trust, and Rosemary Gillespie, CEO of the Trust, said: The Trust is delighted that the building will remain part of the community. Throughout the sale, we remained committed to ensuring the important historical legacy of the Lighthouse is protected, and we are pleased to say that the memorial garden will be retained as a place of reflection for people with a link to it.”
The Museum contains branded objects and design classics, nostalgia inducing items such as Spangles, Watneys Party Seven and Fiendish Feet yoghurts. These are presented alongside artefacts of daily life such as household appliances, toys and fashion, which demonstrate our consumer heritage and changing life in Britain over the last 150 years.
