Home life through the last couple of centuries, with room settings to make us older visitors feel even older! Beautiful gardens too. A visit is highly recommended

The Geffrye is a fascinating little museum. Located in a Grade 1 listed building, each room is well laid out with lots of information on the furniture and decoration from Tudor times to (almost) the present day. The garden at the back is gorgeous: it's so peaceful it's hard to believe it's only moments away from Hoxton Station and a very busy and congested Kingsland Road. Will definitely be visiting again.

A delightful small museum with a good café and lovely gardens. Our visit was to see the Upholstery : Evolution to Revolution exhibition, which is excellent. Closes 21st May.

This museum provides a calm experience and a great way to spend a couple of hours. Loved the rooms, loved the gardens but didn't love the food in the nice space that is the cafe .... The service was poor and not very inspiring food. But give this place a go since it's a unique set-up and FREE !
