Foundling Museum


About the Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, Britain's first home for abandoned children.

The museum houses a nationally important art collection as well as the world's largest privately amassed collection of Handel memorabilia.

The museum examines the work of the Foundling Hospital's founder Thomas Coram, as well as the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel, both major benefactors of the institution.

It also illustrates how the Foundling Hospital's charity work for children still carries on today through the child care organisation Coram.
