Geffrye Museum
The museum of the British Front Room, from 1600 to the present, also has a herb garden and a series of period garden 'rooms' with period seating (open Apr 1 to Oct 31, during museum opening hours). Four galleries from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries reopened in Nov 2006. The rooms recreate typical living spaces from 1630, 1695, 1745 and 1790. As well as representing the changing materials used in halls and parlours, the rooms reflect the social changes that occurred over the featured years, from the increasing importance of time-keeping to the rising popularity of tea-drinking.
