The Museum tells the poignant story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. Housed in a Grade II-listed Georgian-style building, the Museum offers a mix of historic interiors and contemporary event spaces, providing a unique setting for your wedding, meeting, dinner or Christmas party.

Located in Bloomsbury, central London, the Museum is a unique venue for hire near Russell Square and Holborn underground stations, and both Euston and King’s Cross St Pancras International.
