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.
Join us after dark as we delve deeper into the architectural history and design of this unique Museum, house and studio. The Museum is yours to explore as you wander corridors lined by Sir John Soane’s architectural drawings, sculptures, paintings and treasures.
Make Sir John Soane's historic Drawing Office your creative studio.

Based in the newly restored Drawing Office, you will develop and share your work in partnership with teams across the Museum.
