    Ignore tips that say the address is "Colville Mews", that is the old site. As per the map, the Museum is now at 111-117 Lancaster Road, W11 1QT.

    I think they should be more respectful towards 1D, referring to Zayn as "the one who left" & covering half their display window, its boring anyway

    An hidden gem for all packaging and graphic design lovers. Some parts will remind your of your childhood whenever where you're coming from. Not to busy so it´s a calm visit.

    Lovely, small museum. Started as a private collection, it is a time capsule of consumer goods from Victorian times to present days. Come in the morning to have it all to yourself

    A museum full of product and brand designs since the Victorian era. It's great to observe how the famous FMCG brands evolved in time. Must-see for agency people.(This museum is NOT about advertising.)

    This museum has a magic about it that's similar to digging through your grandparents' kitchen cupboards. Check the website to get tickets to talks at the museum that include admission.

    Nice small and very complete museum, for all designers and related. Not expensive, a bit hidden but easy to reach after a small walk. Friendly place, shop and little cafe.
