Geffrye Museum Closing Day Party
The celebrations continue all day with live music and performances, craft workshops, and the museum team on hand to talk about the Geffrye’s plans for the future and a chance for you to get behind the scenes.
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.
Admission to the museum including the eleven period rooms and herb and period gardens is free. Our Period Rooms Highlights Tour audio guide is available from the reception desk for £3.50, with a free version for blind and partially-sighted visitors.
