    There are chairs which you can sit on and feel retro. Just watch out for signs that say so.

    "Museum of living rooms. Free. Near Shoreditch. It should be immediately obvious to you whether or not this is a good idea. Not hipster."

    Hidden treasure of a museum about family life in London from 16th to 20th Century. Plenty of info and interactive features. Well worth a visit.

    Lovely herb garden and grounds right off kingsland road. The museum is pretty bland but free to get in.

    A visit to the Geffrye Museum is about as close as it gets to travelling in time. Dedicated to interior design, it consists of a series of eleven lovingly recreated period living rooms. Read more

    The free art workshops for kids are very popular - get here early if you want a place - booking opens half an hour before the start time - grab an activity sheet from the Quiz desk to keep

    Gotta check out the 'Japanese Home' exhibition. The Curator, in the jp spirit of not collecting second hand goods - will be raffle ticketing everything showing!

    Melissa Tgs · April 22, 2011

    Named after a former Lord Mayor of London (d.1703), this museum shows how the English home has changed from 1630 to 1998 with 11 ‘sample’ rooms, each with festive decorations at Christmas.

    A truly unique and remarkable museum with some fantastic plans for expansion now that the new Hoxton station has opened... watch this space! ;-)

    Great museum in Hackney but nowhere for people to eat picnics indoors. Service at the restaurant not the best and I was served my worst ever, chewy bread and butter pudding once. The waiter admitted
