The Sir John Soane’s Museum is located on the North side of Lincoln’s Inn Fields and is the former home of John Soane, one of Britain’s most celebrated neo-classical architects. Soane built the home, completing it in 1812, followed by two adjacent homes, with the intention that they would one day hold his vast collection of art and objects from around the world. The architect’s legacy also includes the Bank of England and the Dulwich Picture Gallery, and he influenced many other British architects through his professorship at the Royal Academy. The Museum has been maintained in virtually the same state in which Sloane left it upon his death in 1837. Sir John Soane’s encyclopaedic curiosities are displayed for visitors to enjoy up-close at this lavish home.
