Welcome to the extraordinary home and museum of the architect Sir John Soane. Born in1753, the son of a bricklayer, Soane became one of the most celebrated architects of his day. He designed the Bank of England, Dulwich PictureGallery, Pitzhanger Manor and his own home at 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields. When he died in 1837, he left his home to the public as a museum. Today the museum fulfils his wish and presents his collection of art, sculptures, books and furniture as it was in 1837, so visitors can step back in time into his beautiful and unusual house.

    Inspired by three great 18th-century activists - Thomas Coram, George Frideric Handel and William Hogarth -the Foundling Museum is a force for change. We believe in creative action that brings past and present together to stimulate imaginations and enrich young lives. 

    We think play matters and not just for children. We're very serious about our work, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. For us play means a light touch and an inquisitive attitude, and we welcome everyone to share in what we do. We celebrate the work of artists to inspire people to take positive action that transforms the lives of children and young people and creates a lasting impact on society.
