A Passion for Packaging

Robert Opie is the acknowledged expert on how advertising and consumer products have changed since Victorian times. Although the focus of his research has been on supermarket brands, his other interests extend to all aspects of our consumer story as well as the evidence of historic events like wars, major exhibitions and royal occasions. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Robert Opie Collection, we are delighted to welcome its founder to speak at the Florence Nightingale Museum.


Robert Opie is the acknowledged expert on how advertising and consumer products have changed since Victorian times. Although the focus of his research has been on supermarket brands, his other interests extend to all aspects of our consumer story: toys and games, travel and transport, leisure and entertainment, magazines and newspapers, technology and fashion, as well as the evidence of historic events like wars, major exhibitions and royal occasions. All this gives a wider context to the everyday history of marketing trends.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Robert Opie Collection, we are delighted to welcome its founder to speak at the Florence Nightingale Museum. The Opie Collection in the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising features over 12,000 original items that chart the changes in popular culture and lifestyle, entertainment, travel, toys and household articles.

Admission price £8.00 (Members of the Florence Nightingale Museum £5.00) and includes a glass of wine and a chance to view the museum. To book, please contact Katie Edwards on katie@florence-nightingale.co.uk or 020 7620 0374.
