The Foundling Museum

Tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, founded 1739, London's first home for abandoned children and of three major figures in British history: its campaigning founder the philanthropist Thomas Coram, the artist Hogarth and the composer Handel, both major benefactors.

Displays including pictures donated by Hogarth, Gainsborough, Knellar, also Handel's own copy of the "Messiah", are part of a remarkable collection of art, complete interiors saved from the hospital and its social history. Housed in a restored building adjacent to the original site of the Hospital, demolished in 1928.
