The Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch, East London is named after Sir Robert Geffrye, former Lord Mayor of London. It is devoted to British furniture, textiles, paintings and decorative arts. It shows the changing style of the English domestic interior in a series of period rooms from 1600 to the present day. The emphasis is on middle class interiors and furniture, rather than the royal and aristocrat commissions often seen in museums of the decorative arts.

The museum is set in the Grade I listed almshouses of the Ironmongers' Company, built in 1714 at the bequest of Geffrye. It also has a modern extension built in 1992, including a restaurant which is popular at lunchtime.
