Sir John Soane's Museum is an historic house, museum and library of the distinguished 19th century architect Sir John Soane. Soane (1753 – 1837) was one of the most inventive architects of his time. He built the Bank of England and Dulwich Picture Gallery, as well as his own extraordinary home by buying, demolishing and rebuilding three houses in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. At Soane’s request, the house has been left untouched since his death – almost 180 years ago.
