The Florence Nightingale Museum has been on its site on St Thomas’s Hospital since 1989. The collection is wide ranging from Florence’s slate she used as a child, her pet owl Athena, to the Turkish lantern used in the Crimean War.

  1. What a wonderful experience today!
    The actress/persona of Florence Nightingale was on point with keeping the attention of 31 year 2 pupils from Telferscot Primary School.
    She told the story in such an interactive way, I would definitely recommend visiting the museum. Lots of interesting information and visual effects.
