About: Britain's original home for abandoned children and London's first ever public art gallery.

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, period interiors and social history is now housed in a restored and refurbished building adjacent to the original site of the Hospital, demolished in 1926.

This is my favourite museum in London. It is beautifully presented with paintings and music history and everything is tied together with the story of the children that grew up without their parents in that orphanage, Thomas Coram's Foundling Hospital. You never get bored.
