  • Visitor Information

The end of the seven-year restoration project at Sir John Soane's Museum is celebrated with Below Stairs, an exhibition which includes four contemporary works by leading designers, created in response to the restored Regency kitchens, open to the public for the first time this September. Olympic Torch designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, along with Jasper Morrison, Martino Gamper and Paul Cocksedge have created works for the display which coincides not only with the completion of the museum's restoration but also with the London Design Festival.

 

About Sir John Soane's Museum

An appealingly higgledy-piggledy treasure trove of artefacts, the extraordinary Sir John Soane's Museum elegantly located on Lincoln's Inn Fields is well worth an exploratory rummage. Lurking in nooks and crannies within the sprawling rooms and halls of neo-classical architect Sir John Soane's former residence are over 30,000 architectural drawings and antiquities.
