Home has many meanings, from the spaces we live in to a feeling that goes beyond a specific time or place. Set in 18th century almshouses surrounded by gardens in Hoxton, East London, the Museum of the Home reveals and rethinks the way we live by sharing personal and diverse stories of home life throughout its galleries, Rooms and Gardens Through Time, exhibitions and events.
The Museum reopened in Spring 2021 after a major redevelopment that will greatly improve access and open up spaces previously unseen by the public in its 100 year history. Much more of the collection is on display in new galleries highlighting touching personal stories and important universal themes relating to the home.
