Thomas Coram, a shipbuilder and philanthropist established the foundling hospital which opened in 1739 in Bloomsbury thanks in part to the support of William Hogarth and George Frederic Handel. It was the first public art gallery and we will have a guided tour lasting approximately one hour. The museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the first children’s charity, and includes an exhibition about remarkable women.

Prior booking is required and a charge is made.
