Sir John Soane's Museum, 12 and 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields
This museum is located in a quiet square in the centre of London. The external facade gives little indication of the museum. It is somewhat ornate compare to its neighboring houses but the surprise comes when you enter this building.
Sir John set up the museum to display the collection of unusual paintings, particularly Hogarth and classical artifact collected during his life and the museum displays them in a way you have never seen before.
The basement rooms are arranged reminiscent of a Roman catacomb he first visited during his travels and the whole house is festooned with his treasures. He was one of the most influential architects of his time and is regaining influence today.
Go and visit the museum if you get the opportunity. An unforgettable experience.
The museum is maintained by the Trustees of Sir John Soane's Museum
