Geffrye Museum

Walk through time at one of London's most friendly and enjoyable museums.

Opened in 1914 the Geffrye Museum is set in elegant Grade 1 listed, 18th Century almshouses with delightful gardens. It is the only museum in the United Kingdom to show a specialist collection of English furniture and decorative arts in a chronological series of period rooms, from the 17th century with oak furniture and panelling, past the refined splendour of the Georgian period and the high style of the Victorians, to 20th-century modernity, seen in a 1930's flat, a mid century room in 'contemporary' style plus a late 20th Century living space in a converted warehouse.

The museum and gardens are brought to life through an imaginative programme of seminars, workshops, drama and music, which range throughout the year. Special exhibitions are mounted throughout the year, exploring a wide variety of themes relating to the period room displays.
