The myths of ancient Greece and Rome come to life in this special Late at Sir John Soane’s Museum.

At this immersive event, visit this spectacular Museum after dark, as the spaces transform into an imaginative version of the ancient afterlife.

Delve into the Crypt to experience the Underworld through spectacular spotlighting and soundscapes. Navigate the labyrinthine, candlelit passageways of the Museum, discovering two-thousand-year-old artworks and join our expert guides for object talks and readings of the classical epics. After your Odyssey through the Museum, ascend to Elysium - Sir John’s Drawing Room - where a bar will be serving themed drinks as offerings to the Gods.

The ancient world fascinated collector and architect Sir John Soane, who crammed his house-museum with an extraordinary collection of ancient artefacts. This event presents the rare opportunity to take photographs after dark in the Museum – we’ll be running a competition, so tag your photography with #SoaneLates to get the chance to feature on our own Instagram for a chance to win a limited edition goodie bag.
