Welcome to Sir John Soane's Museum
Discover the extraordinary house and museum of Sir John Soane, one of the greatest English architects, who built and lived in it two centuries ago. The museum has been kept as it was at the time of his death in 1837, and displays his vast collection of antiquities, furniture, sculptures, architectural models and paintings.
We're open Wednesday to Sunday, 10 to 5. Entry is free and you can visit by walking in on the day. Joining a highlights tour, or visiting as a group of eight or more, requires advanced booking.
