School rates are available for When Brands Take a Stand, an exhibition showcasing inspirational and debated advertising campaigns from history.

Museum of Brands

Students can take a self-guided tour of the museum, including its Time Tunnel.

When Brands Take a Stand, opening on 10th March, will share advertising campaigns deemed inspirational and debated, and that were designed to make a statement on themes such as diversity, the environment, health and human rights.

TV adverts, packaging and posters will feature in the exhibition, which can be accessed with a Museum of Brands general admission ticket. 

Based in London’s Notting Hill, the Museum of Brands conveys how brands have influenced and been influenced by culture and society in the last 150 years.

“Brands and advertising agencies have a platform to influence, and with that comes responsibility. This initiative dives into these complex relationships.”

Chris Griffin, CEO at the Museum of Brands



Museum of Brands

The Museum of Brands is located on Lancaster Road in Notting Hill.

A series of monthly talks will accompany the exhibition from March to September, covering topics like social media content moderation (led by Dr Ysabel Gerrard) and marketing ethical fashion (from Chartered Marketer Susan Bishop). 

Free exhibition worksheets are also available for school groups, who can see other features of the museum during a visit, including the permanent Time Tunnel exhibition.

The Time Tunnel display features magazines, toys, food packaging and more in order to tell the story of evolving consumerism over the decades.

Curriculum-based worksheets are offered to school groups on a self-led visit. There’s also a new trail that allows students to step outside of the museum and visit the Portobello Road Market, ten minutes away.

The trail sheet aims to encourage pupils to identify brands that they see and how well they communicate a message.
