A much loved Christmas tradition returns this year, as the refurbished Museum of the Home decorates rooms with Christmas displays from down the centuries.

The Museum’s main ground-floor display is a series of classic living rooms laid out as they could have been in the past, ranging from the Tudor era right up to a 1980s home. Every Christmas though, each of the rooms are decorated as they might have been done for Yuletide in times past, from the spartan puritans to over the top Victorians, and the plastic fantastic 1960s.

The former Geffrye Museum hasn’t been able to put on the Christmas displays since Winter 2017 as the museum closed in January 2018 for the huge refurbishment that saw it finally reopen earlier this year as a much larger museum.

So this is the first time in three years that people have been able to wander through time seeing how Christmas Past was celebrated in England.

The Christmas display opens on Tuesday 9th November and runs until just after 12th Night, closing on Sunday 9th January 2022.

The Museum of the Home is free to visit, and although not essential, they recommend booking tickets in advance in case you turn up on a busy day and can’t get in.

The Museum will be closed 25th to 27th December 2021 and 1st-3rd January 2022.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Thanks for the reminder. I’ve been once during Christmas time many years ago. I absolutely loved the groovy ‘n’ chic 1960s Christmas room and I’d love to see it again.
