Museum of Brands

Just around the corner from the world-famous Portobello Road Market stands a treasure trove of retro design and memories.
Imagine walking through galleries full to the brim with oddities and wonders alike, where every corner you turn leads you into a different decade.

You’ll see Rimmel cosmetics from the 1890s, First World War Oxo Cubes, Mars Bars, Rolos and KitKats from the 1930s, a 1970s Chopper Bike and around 12,000 other items that will open your eyes to the way we lived and shopped.
