The Geffrye Museum of the Home
London, E2 8EA
The Geffrye explores the home from 1600 to the present day.
A chronological sequence of period rooms shows how homes have been used and furnished over the past 400 years, reflecting the changes in society and patterns of behaviour as well as style, fashion and taste. The museum is set in Grade I listed 18th-century almshouses in East London. The grounds include a series of period gardens which chart the styles of town gardens over the past 400 years.
Note: The Geffrye Museum will be closed for two years for major redevelopment from 8 January 2018.
