If you like nosing around other people's homes, you'll love this museum devoted to middle-class domestic interiors. Built in 1714 as a home for poor pensioners, these beautiful ivy-clad brick almshouses have been converted into a series of living rooms dating from 1630 to the present day. The rear garden too is organised by era, mirroring the museum's exploration of domesticity through the centuries. The Geffrye will close for around two years from January 2018 for major renovations.
