Gerffrye Museum

Domestic Archaeology at the Geffrye – I pass by this odd little museum every day on the way to work, or at least I have for the past few months since I’ve been in my new flat. I rarely look at it. And have never been in.

But now I’m going to. I saw this poster today and it looks like they’ve got the Light Surgeons (trendy AV artist types) doing an installation about Domestic Archaeology. It’s got a website up at

I love their description of what the museum is about:

The Geffrye Museum specialises in the domestic interiors and gardens of urban middle-classes. Its displays span from 1600 to 2000, forming a sequence of period rooms, which capture the quintessential nature of English interior style.

I should have visited months ago!
