Museums And Galleries Of London2013
By Amelia Meyer
As the cultural, social and economic epicentre of England, London represents the very essence of the country. It is home to a number of galleries and museums, which tell the tale of this land’s rich heritage and people, both ancient and modern.
The Foundling Museum
This museum is dedicated to the story of the Foundling Hospital, which was London's first sanctuary for abandoned children. The art, interior décor and history that are displayed within its walls are fascinating and touching. The structure is the restored building that was once adjacent to the original hospital. Unfortunately, the hospital was demolished in 1928. The Foundling Museum was established in 1998 by the Thomas Coram Foundation for Children, today known as Coram.
