Sir John Soane's Museum

Part time machine, part treasure trove, Sir John Soane’s Museum was the house of a famous neo-classical architect who, on his death in 1837, bequeathed the building and its extraordinary contents to the public on the condition that it be preserved exactly as he left it.

Soane was an avid collector of books, art and antiquities, including Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress, paintings by JMW Turner and Canaletto, the alabaster sarcophagus of Seti I, and thousands of architectural drawings and historical volumes.

As well as Soane’s own collections, the museum hosts a full programme of temporary exhibitions.
