This handling session offers visitors a unique opportunity to hold and examine a selection of objects mirroring those in the Museum’s Collection. Our Handling Collection provides visitors with a unique opportunity to touch and study a selection of objects similar to those in the galleries. Items in the Handling Collection include children’s clothing, replica Court Room plasterwork and a selection of tokens as found in the Introductory Gallery. Led by Janette Bright, researcher for our exhibition Basic Instincts, gain a deeper insight into the plight of mothers who were forced by circumstance to give up their babies to the Foundling Hospital.

This event is part of the Being Human festival, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
