We run a wide range of activities – lots of them free – for families.

Free Exhibition and Museum trails

Our trail for budding young architects is a great way to explore the Museum, revealing hidden connections between objects. We also have a trail for our current exhibition. Download these trails here before you visit, then pick up a pencil from the front desk and get going!

Free half-term and holiday activities

Come and see us on the first Tuesday of every school holiday, when we run free drop-in art workshops from 11:00 – 15:00. Just drop in, no booking required, and stay for as long as you like.

Every holiday has a different theme linked to our temporary exhibition. Previous activities have included making ceramics, creating pavilions, and designing pop-up landscapes.

Architecture clubs

Sir John Soane wanted his Museum to be a place of education and inspiration for architects. Today, we carry on this tradition with the Soane’s architectural clubs.

We run two clubs: the Young Architects' Club for 7–10 year-olds, and the New Architects' Club for 11–14 year-olds.

Both meet on the first Saturday of every month, with a different architectural theme each year. Membership cost: £100 per year.

Applications are now being accepted for our 2017/18 intake, starting in September 2017. Please download the relevant application form below and email it our Learning team at education@soane.org.uk to apply.
