On Tuesday, September 13, London’s Sir John Soane Museum reopened following a seven-year restoration project. The institution was once home to to the influential Neoclassical architect John Soane and currently houses his fine art and antiques collection, as well as drawings and models of his projects. Now that the restoration is complete, the museum is able to display ten-percent more of Soane’s eclectic holdings. The monumental project was funded by a number of major grants, including one from the Monument Trust and another from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
