The Foundling Museum tells the poignant story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery.
The Museum is located in Bloomsbury, Central London, in a Grade II-listed Georgian-style building, and offers a stunning mix of historic interiors and contemporary exhibition spaces.
The generosity and creative philanthropy of the artist William Hogarth, composer George Frideric Handel and their contemporaries was remarkable from the Hospital’s earliest days. Their donations lie at the heart of the fabulous Collection, which includes works by Gainsborough, Reynolds and Roubiliac, and the internationally important Gerald Coke Handel Collection.
The Foundling Museum is now available for private hire, and makes an ideal space for an event with a bit of creative flair. Weddings, receptions, dinners and corporate events have all been held in the vast Brunswick Square building, where guests can occupy all four floors or pick one of its galleries for a more intimate gathering.
