Sir John Soane's Museum Foundation was established in 1991 as a forum for architecture, design, museum studies, art, and the decorative arts within the Soanian tradition. The Foundation offers a variety of enriching lectures and programs in New York and throughout the United States; in addition, it organizes foreign study tours focused on architecture and design, both classical and contemporary, and sponsors fellowships for outstanding graduate students and others to pursue studies at Sir John Soane's Museum in London and elsewhere in the United Kingdom. The core mission of the Foundation is the raising of funds to support the Soane Museum in London and its extraordinary collections.
