The Sloane Museum is the extraordinary house of Sir John Soane, one of the greatest English architects, who built and lived in it more than a century and a half ago.
The Museum has been kept as it was at the time of his death nearly 180 years ago. It displays his collection of antiquities, furniture, sculptures, architectural models, paintings – including work by Hogarth, Turner and Canaletto  – and over 30,000 architectural drawings. It’s a vast, extraordinary collection, full of curiosities and surprises.


Today, the Museum continues to offer free access to visitors, just as Soane intended. We host thought-provoking exhibitions, run inspiring events, and maintain a rich research library.

Our Trustees safeguard the museum, supported by a small team of staff and volunteers. We’re always looking for people to volunteer with us.
