'My son is non verbal severely autistic. He would run and hide from the vacuum and the electric mixer because of the noise, it caused us so many problems.

But now...part of his new routine he bakes cupcakes every day'

Museum of the Home I have created a cooking channel whilst in lockdown, doing recipes for takeaways that are closed! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcsMf855VmnceHUT9e7kMEQ
Sad that you have changed your name from Geffrye Museum 😢
I am so upset that the museum has changed its name Robert Geffrey was the founder of these arms houses, and changing the name will change the history of the museum. I lived in the east end and mostly Bethnal Green for many years I was born there. Have taken school children on visits and my own children when they were small. Its one of my favourite museums because it was local. I love Christmas there with the trees and the history of Christmas. I am very proud to be part of the museum for so many years and loved the name Geffrye which was so important. I wonder if the name change had planning permission. The new name is too modern for all that history in those rooms across the centuries. Just hate the name. The benefactor put his money into the building and now he is lost like so much history in the area. So disappointed, hopefully I will visit to see whats happened to this wealth of history.
Any museum professionals heading to the 'We Are Museums' conference in Kasowice (Poland) next week? #wam19 Very excited to meet lots of industry leaders, I'll be there as the French translator for museum content. Can't wait!
https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/21058/ Yes! It is this weekend ! Sunday 2-5 pm. So if you fancy an eyeful of flowers and particularly roses do come along. I will be baking scones , lemon drizzle cake and flapjacks. All proceeds go to NGS charities , mostly palliative care services. There is a free children's trail and James aged 11 will show you his carrot plants and his mud pit.
We had the best scones ever tasted at your lovely cafe. So looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for the wonderful job you are all doing at the museum xXx
Lynn Crease - this is where we spent all our childhood!
Can't believe I've just discovered you and you are closing....
Love this museum. I last went in 1974 when I was at teacher training college. Thoroughly enjoyed it again yesterday. Sorry to hear that many of the staff have not been redeployed during the two year refurbishment.
We wanted to thank the amazing ladies that gave away lots of art materials a couple of weeks ago due to the upcoming coming closure of the museum. We built some really cool Cars!
Im frow Castlemilk in Glasgow and i went to the museum as i worked in Londonon Geffrye St in a garage..and i got to know the man the curator at the time and that was 29 years ago and i thought it was quite interesting .
