Becoming a Friend of the Foundling Museum offers many benefits, but it also makes a real difference to the day to day running of the Museum. Your gift will help every aspect of the work we do here, from our temporary exhibitions to the conservation of our hugely important artworks, our activities with children and families, and even paying for the electricity to light the rooms. Plus, if you visit each of our exhibitions and buy a souvenir, you have already made a saving!
