Opening Hours

The museums's eleven period rooms and special exhibitions are open at the following times:

  • Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 5pm
  • Bank Holiday Mondays 10am - 5pm
  • Closed Mondays (unless Bank Holiday), Good Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day
  • The period gardens and herb garden are open from April to October. The front gardens are open until 5pm all year round
  • The café is open until 4.45pm
  • The shop is open during museum hours

Exciting news ... We are about to embark on a transformational £18m development project - Unlocking the Geffrye - which will mean the museum will close on 7 January 2018 for almost two years. 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 busy programme of events, activities and installations in our front gardens. The restored almshouse will also be open for tours on certain dates throughout the year.
