Foundling Museum - Central London

40 Brunswick Square London, Central London, WC1N 1AZ

Venue Introduction

The Foundling Hospital, established by Captain Thomas Coram in 1739, was also Britain’s first public exhibition space for artists, and the venue for Handel’s first successful English performance of Messiah.
The museum is situated in London’s Bloomsbury, on the former site of the Foundling Hospital.
The grade II listed building provides a stunning mix of historic interiors and contemporary spaces with modern catering facilities.
The Court Room is one of London’s finest Rococo interiors and provides an ideal setting for intimate dinners.
The Picture Gallery displays the magnificent Foundling art collection including works by Hogarth, Gainsborough and Reynolds. It provides a unique backdrop for exclusive entertaining and spectacular events.

Additional Notes:

The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first home for abandoned children and of three major figures in British history: its campaigning founder the philanthropist Thomas Coram, the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. This remarkable collection of art, period interiors and social history is now housed in a restored and refurbished building adjacent to the original site of the Hospital, demolished in 1926.
