The Foundling Museum

United Kingdom / England
Location ID: #999-10036
Set within the tranquil surroundings of Brunswick Square and housing a wealth of artistic treasures, our Grade II listed Georgian-style building provides a stunning, central location. Located in Brunswick Square, close to King’s Cross St Pancras, Euston and Russell Square stations, the Museum is an impressive backdrop for filming and photoshoots. The main filming spaces are The Court Room, The Picture Gallery, and The Committe Room. Filming in other spaces is possible with enough notice. The Court Room was the most splendid room in the Foundling Hospital and designed to be the governors meeting room. It was dismantled in 1927 and faithfully reconstructed at 40 Brunswick Square in 1937. Considered today to be one of the city’s finest eighteenth century Rococo interiors, it is perhaps unique in encapsulating the atmosphere and grandeur of mid-eighteenth-century London. Artists and craftsmen such as the plasterer William Wilton, the sculptor John Michael Rysbrack and the painter Thomas Gainsborough donated their work to embellish the room. The Picture Gallery is a replica of the Hospital’s original. On display are works from the Hospital’s important collection of paintings, which has remained intact through the centuries. The Committee Room is one of three historic interiors that were accurately reconstructed when the charity opened this building as its London headquarters. The Museum features works of art, silverware and furniture from the Hospital’s historic collection.
