10.45am | Wednesday 9 January 2019 | £10
Pre-booking required

Join us for a private one-hour tour of the Foundling Museum where your guide will bring the history of the Foundling Hospital to life, from its origins in the 18th century to the present day, at this important London institution. Learn about the Museum's many treasured objects and discover the stories behind our displays.

The Foundling Hospital was the UK's first children's charity and first public art gallery. The Museum aims to inspire everyone to make a positive contribution to society, by celebrating the power of individuals and the arts to change lives. Among the artists who supported the Foundling Hospital were artist William Hogarth, and composer George Frederic Handel.

Marking 100 years of female suffrage, the current exhibition Ladies of Quality & Distinction highlights the hidden stories of women in the history of the Foundling Hospital. Discover portraits and stories of the 21 duchesses who in 1735, risking society's disapproval, signed a petition to the King calling for the establishment of the institution.

Displayed together for the first time, these paintings temporarily replace portraits of male governors that hang in the Museum's Picture Gallery. Downstairs in the exhibition gallery, the lives of the remarkable women who supported the day-to-day running of the institution are brought to life.

We will meet at the Museum at 10:45am for an 11am tour.

A table for lunch has been reserved at a local restaurant at 1pm for those who wish to stay, payable on the day.
