What People Say About Us
Amazing! What a wonderful day, moving and inspirational. Please provide a magnifying glass for viewing tokens from mothers (both downstairs and upstairs in Picture Gallery). Thank you.
An excellent visit for the V&A Members. Sincere thanks to your Guides and to staff for the hospitality and to the Children’s choir for its performance.
This is my second visit – and I found different items I missed last time. Yours is such an important museum. Please keep up the terrific work of connecting yesterday’s history with today’s situation for many children.
On behalf of the MSHS I would like to report how much we enjoyed our visit to the Foundling Museum last Saturday. Everything worked out very well -including the lovely weather. We would particularly like you to pass on our thanks to Patricia Gibson who was an excellent guide, informative and extremely helpful. Lydia's cream teas were also excellent. I was also very grateful for the way in which your young staff on the reception looked after us. Quite a few of our members thought it one of our best society visits and intend returning in the near future.
Foundling Voices – what an amazing experience. Credit to all the interviewees and those that help create a different and bold project.

I have been reading Threads of Feelings for some time now. As I historical interpreter, I judge their posts suburb. They use universal tangibles to bring history to life. Little bits of cloth become living links to lives and loves long gone, but thanks to Threads of Feeling, not lost. Bravo.

I was able to get the printed program for Threads of Feeling back in October, and I know how meaningful it has been to me, and to other adoptive parents who are also textile artists. Wish we were seeing it in person as well. The Foundling Museum has been really responsive and communicative when it came to all my thoughts and questions and requests, and I have shared the online exhibit with so many people!
Please pass on my thanks to whoever is responsible for making the Threads of Feeling exhibition available online. I had heard of the exhibition but live outside London and am disabled - I would not have been able to visit easily. I am delighted that I will not miss out altogether. I wish more exhibitions were shared in this way, even if it is after they have closed. Thank you for making this accessible.
I just viewed your online exhibition "Threads of Feeling." I am typing through my tears. Exquisite, tragic, and haunting. To all those who put this story together thank you for not forgetting the foundlings and giving voice so many years later.
