For those of you - like our Editor - who may have a real interest in the home, both now and indeed through history too, there’s an eye-catching, unique social, historic and artistically focused project, which is set to open up again up during the Summer if the first year of the up and coming new decade.

It is in fact a stylish presentation known as the Museum of the Home, which is set to re-open following a major renovation. The Museum is to have a new entrance opposite Hoxton overground railway station in London.


Formerly known as the Geffrye Museum, the Museum of the Home will reopen in summer 2020 with a refreshed identity following a major capital development. Diverse, thought-provoking and personal stories will be at the heart of the Museum’s new vision, exhibitions and programme.


These, together with the much-loved Rooms & Gardens Through Time, will explore historic and contemporary ways of living.


Through a wide-ranging programme of festivals, talks, events, performances, exhibitions and collaborations, the Museum will respond to topical and urgent issues such as homelessness, immigration, mental health, and the environment.


Fascinating new permanent displays and beautiful exhibition spaces will bring to life both the extraordinary and everyday experiences of home from 1600 to the present day.


The Museum is actively fund-raising the final £560k of the £18.1m total, including through the online Sow a Seed appeal, which invites the public to support the replanting of its Gardens Through Time via its website £12.3m of the total was awarded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players.
