The Museum of the Home is housed in 300 year old almshouses built in 1714 with money from Sir Robert Geffrye (1613–1704). Each house had four rooms. Each room usually had just one inhabitant. So, there was room for around 50 pensioners.
Now the museum is a place to explore and debate what home means.
The Rooms Through Time settings are based on real London homes and their owners would have had enough money to decorate and live comfortably.
Wendy Shorter-Blake MBE will be hosting a visit to the Museum of the Home on Wednesday 22nd February 2023 at 10.45 a.m.
As well as entry to the museum, there will be a behind the scenes look at some of the items of furniture not normally on display. Wendy will take you round the room sets that cover furniture designs from 1630 to the 1990s.
