Discover what's on at the Soane in 2023

It was Sir John Soane's wish that his home and Museum be preserved as an academy of architecture, free to all. In 2023, we are proud to continue, celebrate and expand upon that legacy.

This year, we will host extraordinary exhibitions, welcome the Museum's first ever artists-in-residence, and open to the public – for the first time ever – Sir John Soane's beautifully restored Drawing Office.

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.
