Temporary closure of the Museum TOP

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.
