Exhibitions and displays

The Geffrye closed on 7 January 2018 for a transformational, two-year development and our exhibition programme will resume in 2020. 

Although the main museum building and period gardens are closed, there will still be 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.

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.

The museums's front gardens are open at the following times:

  • Monday - Friday 7.30am - 5pm
  • Saturday 10am - 5pm
