Sir John Soane's Museum

The Sir John Soane's Museum, often shortened to Soane Museum, is a museum of architecture in London, located in the Holborn district of central London, in front of Lincoln's Inn Fields, the largest public square in London. 

Formerly, the museum was home to the neoclassical architect John Soane, who lived and worked here. In 1833, the artist donated all of his works (including all of his sculptures and paintings) to the museum through a private Act of Parliament. Thus, the museum was opened during his lifetime.

The museum holds about 30,000 prints of architectural models, sculptures and copies of antique sculptures moulded by Soane himself hanging on the walls, which makes the place overly ornamented.
