Learning

The Museum runs a varied and exciting learning programme for schools, families and communities that encourage participants to critically engage with the eighteenth century, the history of the Foundling Hospital and contemporary art.

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK's first children's charity that was established in 1741 and celebrates the ways in which artists of all disciplines have helped improve children's lives for over 270 years.

We honour the vision and continue the work of Thomas Coram, William Hogarth and George Frideric Handel, by enabling today's artists to work alongside children and young people of all ages to cast new light on the histories we tell.
