The Soane Museum is a place for everyone. For groups unable to visit the Museum, we provide an outreach service which takes ideas and objects related to the collection out into the community. We work with a range of partners and are always looking for new collaborations.

Museum tours TOP

We welcome community groups to the Museum throughout the year. Most recently, we have run tours for ESOL groups, home-school groups, adult education groups and older people’s groups. If you are a not-for-profit community organisation and would like a tour of the Museum, please contact us via or use our online booking system.

Artspace TOP

Artspace is our programme for people living with dementia and their carers. The programme offers a convivial space for participants to get to know each other through discovering history and art, with plenty of time for sharing their own stories over tea and biscuits. Our goal is to promote lifelong learning and to enhance the wellbeing of participants through this work.

Our pilot Artspace programme took place over the summer of 2018 in partnership with Holborn Community Association. If you are interested in coming along to our next Artspace as a group or as an individual, email
