Famous for its 18th century alms house buildings, the Geffrye Museum is currently being gutted and turned into something rather interesting.
The Geffrye Museum is currently closed for a major upgrade, but next month there will be a chance to go behind the hordings to see the building site.
As part of a long standing, and at times, controversial, expansion plan, the Geffrye Museum will be closing its doors in a few months for nearly 2 years of rebuilding work.
The Geffrye Museum has, as is now traditional for them, decorated its collection of historic rooms as if they are set for Christmas.
Down in the basement can be found a mock-up of a strange place, of unusual decorations and motifs, of rebellion and solitude, of the teenager.
It's not often that you have to walk past a dozen other people's dining rooms in order to have your own lunch, unless you work in a hotel, but that is how the Geffrye museum is laid out.
