The Museum has recently moved to this building near Ladbroke Grove and when I visited last week they had only half the exhibits in place but will be up to speed by Spring 2016.
Arranged in decades the brands and packaging go back to the 1800s.
|The Museum began life in Gloucester in 1984 and moved to London in 2005. It was the brainchild of Robert Opie who started collecting packaging before it disappeared forever. He wanted to follow the history of consumerism from Victorian times to see how it has evolved. He started his collection 50 years ago and by 1975 he had enough material to hold an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum called The Pack Age and from there opened the Museum in Gloucester.|
