The Geffrye Museum of the Home is located on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch, London. The Museum explores home and home life from 1600 to the present day with a series of period room displays. It is housed in 18th-century Grade I-listed almshouses formerly belonging to the Ironmongers' Company which were built in 1714 thanks to a bequest by Sir Robert Geffrye, a former Lord Mayor of London and Master of the Ironmongers' Company. On 7 January 2018 the Geffrye closed for its two-year £18m development project, Unlocking the Geffrye.
