Restored Almshouse (HTML)

The Geffrye closed on 7 January 2018 for a transformational, two-year development. 

Although the main museum building and period gardens are closed, there are still 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.

The restored almshouse offers a rare glimpse into the lives of London’s poor and elderly in former times.
