Soho House Museum was the home of Matthew Boulton, one of Birmingham's most famous sons. Boulton is famous for his associations with James Watt and the Lunar Society and left his mark on industrial development in Birmingham. The house has been painstakingly restored to its Eighteenth Century glory and reflects Boulton's taste and style. There is also a temporary exhibition gallery and education room on site that has a lively programme of community focussed exhibitions and events. This museum has a Designated Collection of national importance.
