As a retired Adoption social worker I was very interested in visiting, but was very disappointed. The ground floor has interesting recorded tales from a few adults who were cared for via the foundling society. Artifacts and some hustorical records were on show, but were not easily read. I felt a typed translation beside them would have been helpful.
There was no written guide to the building, the history and no one around to tell you details or ask questions of when on the higher floors.
The second floor seemed to focus on music, all classical and a great deal of art, which was mostly portraits of people whom I did not recognise or understand their relevance to the place.
It had a terribly middle class/upper class feel to it which takes the focus awa\y from the real interest...the children, their mothers and their lives.
