Florence Nightingale is famous around the world for her influence on modern nursing, but she herself was more than a nurse. See personal artefacts, a life-size reconstruction of a Crimean ward scene and an audio-visual presentation together reveal the hidden person, from a serious and solitary child to an internationally recognised figure.
The Museum is a short walk from the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and attractions along the South Bank. We are located in the grounds of St Thomas’ Hospital, at parking level.
