The Florence Nightingale Museum



The Florence Nightingale Museum

The official Florence Nightingale and Crimean war museum.

Location: St Thomas' Hospital, 2 Lambeth Palace Road, Lond, SE1 7EW

Description: The museum gives an insight into Florences life and works, revealing her childhood, travels and achievements in reforming midwifery, nursing and public health.

There is a lively programme of guided tours and events, including art workshops.

The collection has its origin in the 'Nightingalia' which was the pride of the Matrons of St Thomas' Hospital in Lambeth from the early twentieth century. It includes artefacts owned or used by Florence Nightingale, including her pet owl Athena and the medicine chest she took with her to the Crimea. It also includes material connected with the Crimean War, military, hospital and nursing objects connected with the Nightingale Training School and St Thomas' Hospital (1860-1910).
