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

Although the main museum building 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.

To keep up to date with all the latest news and events - sign up to our regular e-news and follow us: TwitterFacebook and Instagram.
