Museum of Brands

Opening March 10 - When Brands Take a Stand

Through TV commercials, case studies, posters, and packaging our new exhibition examines how brands engage with societal and political issues. When large brands and businesses take a stand, it can resonate strongly with consumers, often positively, but sometimes negatively. Should brands take a stand? Has an advertising campaign ever changed your views? Visit us from March 10 to join the debate.
