The American Package Museum

Resource:The American Package Museum
Provider:The American Package Museum
Summary:Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision). This website was designed as an online art exhibit of early 20th Century package design.
Description:Corporations brand their products in unique ways through packaging designs. This exhibit features photographs of packages that are no long in circulation — everything from Alka-Seltzer to Wrigley’s Spearmint Chewing Gum.

When you get to the site simply click on the words “Enjoy your visit to The American Package Museum” to start the slide-show. There are over 100 products so it can take some time to view them all. If you want to jump right to a particular product then click on “Index” on the menu bar to see a list of products. Click on a product name and the photo of the package pops right into view.

It’s fun to see the old product designs – a nostalgic trip down memory lane for some parents. If you have some of these same products in your home today, why not take them out of the cupboard and compare the packaging to what’s in this exhibit? It could lead to lots of discussion about art, design, and advertising — and what works and what doesn’t.
