Temporary closure of Sir John Soane's Museum

Following recent recommendations from Public Health England concerning the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, regrettably Sir John Soane’s Museum is temporarily closed from March 18th.

During this period of closure, we invite you to stay in touch with the Museum on TwitterFacebook and Instagram, find extensive resources on all our objects in our collections database, and explore 3D scans of our Museum using our Explore Soane site. Please also sign up to our newsletter to learn more about specific objects, archive material, and spaces in the Museum over the coming weeks.

We will be cancelling or rearranging events scheduled up to 31 May, and the Museum will be sending further information to those who have already booked onto events during the coming months.


The Soane Museum Shop is temporarily closed as we can no longer dispatch orders. All orders placed from 30 March onwards will be deemed pre-orders and will be dispatched as soon as the Museum reopens. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Every purchase supports Sir John Soane’s Museum.

Our shop has a wide range of gift ideas to suit all ages and pockets - from bespoke jewellery and beautiful books, to exclusive products inspired by our collection.

We have worked with designers and artists to create inspired pieces that evoke the essence of the Sir John Soane's Museum.
