Foundling Museum Tours

Telling the story of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity, the Foundling Museum offers a unique insight into one of the country’s most pioneering charities. Established by philanthropist Thomas Coram in 1739, the Foundling Hospital was the first of its kind, using the support of artists and musicians to fund its charitable endeavors. The museum reveals the secrets of its success, the support of artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel, and its influence on charitable arts programs to this day.

As well as learning about the charity, the museum is also home to the Gerald Coke Handel Collection, the world’s largest private collection of Handel memorabilia, including music, art, manuscripts, and books.

Practical Info
