A 1780s almshouse interior at the Geffrye Museum

The Geffrye Museum's restored almshouse

The Geffrye is now closed for a transformational, two-year development

Although the main museum building, herb and period gardens are closed, there are still 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. Almshouse tours are bookable in advance for groups of 8 people or more.

The Geffrye is located in Shoreditch just minutes from the City of London. It is easily reached by public transport. The nearest stations are Hoxton and Old Street.
