About Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first home for abandoned babies established by Royal Charter in 1739. The museum includes a contemporary social history gallery telling the story of the foundling children and the hospital’s fine art collection.

The art collection was donated by artists including Hogarth, Reynolds and Gainsborough, and is displayed in the original Rococo and Georgian setting that was part of the first public art gallery in Britain.

The museum also has a collection of Handel memorabilia, including his will and conducting score of Messiah. There are often free family workshops and concerts for visitors at the Museum, check the website for further information.

Wheelchair access, lift, adapted WC facilities and visitor wheelchair available on request. There is a Museum shop on site and Coram Café offers refreshments and light meals.
