Enjoy an evening of elegance and atmosphere with a drinks reception and a private evening view of the Museum’s fascinating collection.
With the exclusive hire of the Museum, guests can explore our most spectacular spaces to see Soane’s fascinating, world-class collection arranged the same way today as it was in 1837. See the Dome area and the 3,000-year-old sarcophagus of an Egyptian king, as well as our famous Picture Room – which holds masterpieces by Hogarth, Turner, and Canaletto.
Drinks and canapés are served in the Library-Dining Room or the yellow Drawing Rooms. Once guests have drinks in hand, an expert member of staff will provide an introduction to Soane and his eccentric house before guests are invited to explore the ground and first floors of the candlelit Museum at their leisure.
Upon request, we can also open up the Exhibition Galleries, the period kitchens, and/or the Crypt to allow guests a closer look at the famous sarcophagus of Seti I.
