Florence Nightingale Museum Tours

A heroine of the Crimean War, a pioneer of social reform, and the founder of modern nursing – Florence Nightingale is one of the most talked about women in British history. The story of the legendary ‘Lady with the Lamp’ is the focus of the Florence Nightingale Museum, where a series of interactive exhibitions chronicle her life, from her privileged beginnings, to her work as a nurse in the Crimean War, to her role in reforming midwifery and nursing around the world.

Housed in London’s St Thomas’ Hospital - home to the Nightingale Training School of Nursing and Midwifery - the museum showcases almost 3,000 artifacts, including photographs, films, maps, medical equipment, and personal effects. Among the many treasures, highlights include Nightingale’s pet owl Athena, her medicine chest used in the Crimean War, and a rare Crimean Register of Nurses.
