Disabled Access Day at the Foundling Museum

We’re taking part in Disabled Access Day, a nationwide celebration of good access that creates opportunities for people to try something new.

On 11 and 12 March visitors can enjoy fun and accessible talks, tours and sessions, that explore the Foundling Hospital’s history and the Museum’s Collection. On Saturday, explore the Collection up close in an object handling session, with replicas of children’s clothing and the Foundling Hospital tokens. Learn about the Foundling Hospital’s work with disabled children in a volunteer-led talk revealing the new research behind our display So That They May Be Usefull to Themselves. On Sunday, visitors can join a BSL tour of the Museum, led by Edward Richards, introduced in the above video.

We are committed to making the Museum accessible to all visitors. Find out more about our facilities and read our policies here.
