Don’t forget! The Geffrye will close on 7 January 2018 for a transformational, two-year development

Visit us for Christmas Past and come to our Farewell Party Weekend on 6 and 7 January to enjoy street food, winter cocktails and live music as we say farewell to Christmas and to the museum.

Although the main museum building and period gardens will be closed, there will still be plenty of reasons to come to the Geffrye. Throughout closure we will run a programme of events and activities in our front gardens. The restored almshouse will also be open for tours on certain dates throughout the year.
