Opening day is here


We’re delighted that our much-anticipated exhibition is now open to the public.

After months of hard work and your support, we’re excited to now be welcoming visitors to the show. You can see the magnificent 21 Ladies in our Picture Gallery, along with stories and portraits of the many women who worked behind the scenes of the Foundling Hospital in our exhibition gallery.

Over the next few months we’re holding a range of events to complement the exhibition, from a screening of the sensational Georgian drama The Duchess screened in the Picture Gallery, to a tour of the exhibition with 18th-century specialist Elizabeth Einberg, and a literary evening exploring Georgian London.

All events are listed at

The exhibition runs from 21 September 2018 to 20 January 2019. We hope to welcome you through the doors of the museum very soon.
