The Foundling Museum tells the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. Among the artists who supported the Foundling Hospital were William Hogarth, and the composer George Frideric Handel.
From 1741 when the first babies were admitted, to 1954 when the last pupil was placed in foster care, the Foundling Hospital cared for and educated around 25,000 children.
Included is a guided tour a two-course lunch with tea/coffee.
