The Geffrye Museum is named after Sir Robert Geffrye, Lord Mayor of London and Master of the Ironmongers' Company, who founded the almshouses in 1715. A suitably grand statue of him, complete with long wig, still stands below the clock tower at the building's main entrance. Anyone interested in home interiors through the ages will delight in the Geffrye Museum, a small but enjoyable exhibition in London's East End.
The Geffrye Museum specialises in the history of the English domestic interior from 1600 to the present day.
The museum is set in the former almshouses of the Ironmongers’ Company. This is the only museum in the United Kingdom to show a specialist collection of English furniture
