The Geffrye is now closed for a transformational, two-year development.
Although the main museum building and 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 is also open for tours on certain dates throughout the year.
