The Soane Museum is a place for everyone. For groups unable to visit the Museum, we provide an outreach service which takes ideas and objects related to the collection out into the community. We can also offer virtual visits for groups via video conferencing. We work with a range of partners and are always looking for new collaborations.

We are delighted to be able to welcome your group to the museum in person and all of our tours continue to be available as virtual visits via video conferencing. Visits to the museum are subject to current Covid-19 guidance. Please do be in touch with us on and we can organise a visit that suits your needs.

Artspace Back to top

Artspace is our programme for people living with dementia and their carers. The programme offers a convivial space for participants to get to know each other through discovering history and art, with plenty of time for sharing their own stories over tea and biscuits. Our goal is to promote lifelong learning and to enhance the wellbeing of participants through this work.

Our pilot Artspace programme took place over the summer of 2018 in partnership with Holborn Community Association. If you are interested in coming along to our next Artspace as a group or as an individual, email
