THE GEFFRYE MUSEUM IS NOW CLOSED FOR A TWO-YEAR DEVELOPMENT.
THROUGHOUT CLOSURE WE ARE RUNNING A PROGRAMME OF EVENTS IN OUR FRONT GARDENS. THE RESTORED ALMSHOUSE IS ALSO OPEN FOR TOURS ON CERTAIN DATES.
Our collections show how homes have been used and furnished over the past 400 years, reflecting changes in society and behaviour as well as style, fashion and taste. A series of period rooms lead visitors on a walk through time from 17th century oak furniture and panelling, past muted Georgian elegance and eclectic Victorian style, to 20th century modernity and contemporary living.
These rooms are complemented by a sequence of period gardens and a walled herb garden which illustrate the role of the garden in home life and how domestic gardens have changed over time.
Opening hours Tuesday – Sunday 10.00-17.00. Closed Mondays except Bank Holiday Mondays Entry is free.
