Sir John Soane's Museum

13 Lincolns Inn Fields 


Sir John Sloane, one of Englandís greatest architects, was born in Berkshire in 1753. He died in 1837 leaving behind his house as a public Museum protected by an Act of Parliament passed in 1833.

The Act stipulated that his remarkable house and collection be left Ďas nearly as possible in the state in which he shall leave ití. In 1995 a restoration programme was completed and the rooms now appear almost exactly as they did on the day of Sloane's death.
