Sir John Soane's Museum Visit
Friends of Minerva and the Apollo Society are invited to join us for an exclusive access tour of Sir John Soane’s Museum. Now the smallest National Museum, it is the preserved home/architectural studio/museum lived in and designed by the Neoclassical architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837). The Museum is renowned for its idiosyncratic spaces and eclectic collection, ranging from Ancient Egyptian and Greek antiquities to works by Reynolds, Turner, and Canaletto. Beginning at 4pm, we will be led around the Museum out-of-hours by one of their expert guides, with the opportunity to explore lesser-seen spaces such as the Private Apartments which houses Soane’s impressive cork model collection. After our tour, we will be able to enjoy refreshments in the Yellow Drawing Rooms.
