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 and social history is now housed in a restored and refurbished building adjacent to the original site of the Hospital, which was demolished in 1926. The lower-ground floor of the Museum houses the Temporary Exhibition Gallery.
