The Foundling Museum is committed to making its facilities accessible to all visitors.

Visitors with a Blue Badge for disabled parking may park on the single yellow line or residents bay just outside the front of the building. The Museum’s entrance and public spaces are wheelchair accessible with lift access to all floors. A complimentary wheelchair may be borrowed at Museum Reception. Wheelchair-accessible toilets are located on the lower ground and ground floors. Floor plans are provided here. To pre book the wheelchair please call +44 (0)20 7841 3600.

Carers of persons with disabilities are admitted free of charge.

With advance notice, the Museum offers guided gallery visits to children and adults with learning difficulties and physical impairment, including touch tours for those with visual impairment/registered blind. This service is also offered to visitors with hearing impairments/registered deaf, although the Museum cannot provide BSL interpretation. Please call us to discuss how we can make your visit a rewarding one.

Widgit's accessible services

The Foundling Museum worked with Widgit to produce a symbol-supported Museum trail, which visitors can download here or collect at Museum Reception.
