John Soanes was a prominent 19th century architect. His house has remained untouched for nearly 180 years and is an example of living art. While alive in London, he amassed an impressive and diverse collection of art, sculpture, and furniture, and today, the museum is a haven of eccentricities. Each room is packed with extraordinary works, including 30,000 architectural drawings. Take one of the exceedingly popular Tuesday night candlelight tours. Only the first 200 people who arrive can enter, so get there early.
