Ever wondered what happens in the parts of the Museum you don’t normally see? Book on our first ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour to head beyond the belled ropes and discover the spaces closed to the public.
You will be guided by a curator through Number 14, the final house that Soane designed in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, have a glimpse of the staff offices in the Museum and take a first peek at the spaces that will be developed in the next stage of building works – Soane’s private apartments.
Pre-booking is essential. For further information, please email Beth Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7440 4254.
No stilettos, because of potential damage to our historic floors.
Large bags may not be carried through the Museum.
