Uncover the lady behind the legend at this memorable museum on London’ South Bank. Highlights from the collection include Florence’s pet owl Athena and the medicine chest she took to the Crimean War. The vivid storytelling and interactive exhibits will appeal to all ages.
Florence Nightingale was the most influential woman in Victorian Britain after Queen Victoria herself. Travel through three exciting pavilions where you will relive her childhood, understand her experiences in the Crimean War and learn how she pioneered modern nursing practices.
