After the death of John Soane’s wife, Eliza, her bedroom was turned into a model room, now the centrepiece of the newly reopened rooms, which have been recreated from a watercolour of the room by C J Richardson. It is filled with installations of models of Pompeii, Paestum and other ancient sites. The Guardian
