What's on

The museum and gardens are regularly brought to life with an exciting programme of exhibitions and  events and activities for all ages. See our special events for families and young people as well as our academic events and accessible events.

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.
