The Foundling Museum’s Collections are an exceptional resource to enrich teaching. Our exhibitions and displays make creative links across the centuries and offer an inspiring way to engage with our history.

The Museum is free for young people aged 21 and under. We want our story to inspire today’s youth, and by engaging with the powerful story of Thomas Coram and his catalytic supporters, for them to know that their actions matter. To that end, all students, including non-UK, are admitted to the Museum for free up to and including age 21.
