  • Very unusual nostalgic museum. Should b publicized more. Pleasant cafe and good transport links. Rather long way from east London to travel so entrance fee could b a bit less. But excellent day out. The staff all volunteers were pleasant and helpful
  • Great displays, you could be in there minutes or days depending on how much time you spend looking at each thing. It was a great blast from the past. The only way I think they could improve it is to explain or question brands more than just display them, for example to explain the changes of how packagings used to be made as packaging used to mainly be made of tin and therefore was reusable, I think this would be a great hot topic in the current anti plastic world.
