Museum of Brands

From the current show, The Art of Guiness, Museum of Brands

D+R reader Jarred offers a great London tip:
Tucked away around the corner from the world famous Portobello Road market (remember from Bedknobs and Broomsticks?) - itself a great place for treasures of all kinds - is The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising.

It is stuffed to the rafters with the kinds of beautiful, wacky items you would only find when clearing out your late grandma's attic - 'Blood Stomach Pills' anyone? It's an Aladdin's Cave for retro packaging design. If you're in London, it is a must-see.
Museum of Brands, London (Thanks, Jarred!)
