Geffrye Museum Under Threat

The coalition government plan to axe the funding to the Geffrye Museum on Kingsland Road putting its future in real doubt. Funding from the Department of Culture, Media & Sport accounts for 75% of the Geffrye's income and will end in 2015. A number of other museums across the country will be similarly affected.

The Geffrye Museum details the history of homes and interiors through a series of rooms showing what home life was like from the 1600s to the present day.

A DCMS spokesman said the department was "exploring whether these museums may be more effectively sponsored through other bodies or programmes in the longer term. We aim to identify alternative sponsors for these museums by April 2011. "

With Pepsi writing our public health policy maybe they have IKEA in mind.
