The Museum of the Home, formerly known as The Geffrye Museum has reopened following a major £18 million renovation and rebrand; of which The National Lottery Heritage Fund granted £12.3 million to support the redevelopment. The Museum is the former Geffrye's Almshouse of the Ironmongers' Company built 1712-14 under the will of Sir Robert Geffrye.
Visitors can once again enjoy the Museum’s award-winning Walled Herb Garden which includes over 170 different herbs and plants and was created from scratch in 1992 when it was awarded the MPGA’s London Spade Award.
The newly planted Gardens Through Time ‘show how city gardens have developed over the centuries’ - from a Tudor knot garden to a modern ‘living’ green roof.
