We’re investing £18.2m into the Geffrye to make it a better and more inspiring place for you. By unlocking the Geffrye you will be able to explore parts of the museum never seen by the public before and get much more from your visit. You will be able to:
- Enjoy 50% more space and two floors previously unseen by visitors
- Explore hidden treasures and stories of home from our collections and archives in the Home Gallery and Library
- Come into the museum direct from Hoxton Station - a new entrance opposite the station will lead into a spacious, central reception space with much improved visitor facilities
- Relax in our new cafe
- Enjoy our period gardens and herb garden all year round
Please help us to deliver this transformational project.
The museum will close on 7 January 2018 for almost two years for this work to take place. 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 programme of events and activities in our front gardens. The restored almshouse will also be open for tours on certain days throughout the year.
