Geffrye Museum – A series of period rooms lead visitors on a walk through time from 17th century to 20th century modernity and contemporary living.
Geffrye Museum or Museum of the Home has a beautiful collection devoted to the history of the home, showing how interiors and gardens reflect changes in society, life style and taste over the past 400 years.
A series of period rooms lead visitors on a walk through time from 17th century oak furniture and panelling, past muted Georgian elegance and eclectic Victorian style, to 20th century modernity and contemporary living.
The Geffrye Museum was opened by London County Council in 1914. It is set in the former almshouses of the Ironmongers’ company, built in 1714 with a bequest from Sir Robert Geffrye and sold to London County Council in 1911.
