Get close to the Museum’s Collection with our handling session

14:00 | Free with Museum admission

Guided by the expertise of our Collections staff, the Handling Collection has been developed by our Visitor Engagement team over the past year. The Collection has been acquired to mirror the Museum’s Collection, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to touch and study a selection of objects similar to those in the galleries.

Containing over 30 objects, amongst the Collection are items similar to the Foundling Hospital tokens – the small, humble objects which often leave the greatest impression on our visitors. The opportunity to get close to these items enables visitors to deepen their engagement with the Museum’s Collection.

Held in our Picture Gallery from 14:00 – 16:00, a Museum volunteer will be on hand to guide visitors through the Collection and answer questions.

Suitable for visually impaired visitors and children aged 3+.

The Handling Collection is also available on request. For further information please contact our Visitor Engagement Manager, Vincent Wright, on vincent@foundlingmuseum.org.uk.
