Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum tells the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery.

They work to transform the lives of disadvantaged children through the arts and to inspire people to make the world a better place.

With a colourful history spanning over 275 years and a range of unique things to see and do, the Foundling Museum is one of the most interesting places to visit in London.

The Foundling Museum seeks a successful candidate to grow our impact and profile within Camden and increase public access to our collections, as they undertake a new hyper-local and more sustainable model of engagement and delivery in response to the pandemic.
