Geffrye Museum E2

Location: UK » London » E

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) will stop funding the Geffrye Museum in East London from 2015.

Currently DCMS provides around 75 percent of the museum’s overall funding. The Department insists it will help the museum secure alternative sources of funding, and will not cut it adrift should this new funding not materialise.

The Geffrye Museum’s collections comprise furniture, textiles, paintings and objects displayed in a series of period rooms from 1600 to the present day.
