The museum shows the life of middle-class people through the way they furnished their homes over the past 400 years. It's housed in an interesting old building which has been carefully adapted to house the collection of furniture and other objects. There is a cafe (which I didn't use) and outside the tree-shaded garden is a pleasant place to rest. Admission to the museum is free and it's right beside Hoxton station which has a very frequent train service.
They apparently want to "modernise" the museum by adding extra buildings to it. I suppose this is inevitable these days but the plans have sensibly been rejected by the local Council. However, I guess the museum will be back with further modern ideas so go and see it as it is now while you can!
