The Foundling Museum was originally one of the first houses in London for abandoned children and housed over 27,000 children before its closure. Since then this London attraction has transformed itself into one a specialist London museum with a large collection of artworks and social history relating to the children taken in and the terrible social problems that led to children being abandoned by their parents.

One of its founders, William Hogarth encouraged artists of his day to donate artworks to the house so he could generate money from fees paid by members of the public viewing the works. In effect he created the first gallery in the city at the Foundling House, and as a result this London museum now houses works by artists such as Gainsborough and Hogarth himself.

The Foundling Museum in London is currently housed in buildings adjacent to its original site in Brunswick Square near Russell Square Underground station. Because of its subject it is one of the most child-friendly London museums - in fact the building looks onto one of the biggest children’s parks in London.

It’s worth noting that there are often art workshops and learning events for children at the Foundling Museum, though it is advisable to ring ahead to check the availability of these events.

"We found that the things we wanted to see in London were covered by the London Pass. We heard of the London Pass when we were arranging our BritRail Pass and we investigated how much it would cost to see everything we wanted. We found the convenience of the pass and the cost far outweighed just showing up at the venues and lining up for tickets. We even went to a few venues we didn't have on our "must see" list. Great value...would purchase again & recommend it to others."
