Before you visit London, peruse the website to discover more . Here is a paragraph quoted from the museum’s own webpage describing their mission:
The Geffrye focuses on the urban living rooms and gardens of the English middle classes. Our collections show how homes have been used and furnished over the past 400 years, reflecting changes in society and behaviour as well as style, fashion and taste. 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. These rooms are complemented by a sequence of period gardens and a walled herb garden which illustrate the role of the garden in home life. The gardens are open from 29 March to 31 October. The Geffrye is a much-loved gem in the lively and creative Hoxton area – historically a centre for furniture-making and market gardening.
This wonderful museum in located in Hoxton E2, once of London’s most popular and vibrant areas – we offer several London holiday lets in this location.
“Fantastic location in a hip and culturally diverse area of London.

Much loved by artists and city financiers alike the area offers vibrant restaurants, music venues, bars and night life as well as renowned galleries and museums – the Cube and Geffrye Museum being perhaps best known.”
