3 reviews of Florence Nightingale Museum in English
This tiny museum is really informative. It’s layout is simple and there are quite a lot of exhibits not just of things relating to Florence Nightingale herself, but of the general period in history. A lot of reading to do though and nothing particularly interactive other than one push button display that located various battles!
This is a sweet little museum that really helps you to understand why Florence Nightingale was so important to the history of nursing. What is really striking is how little time she actually spent as a nurse - much of her life was devoted to teaching, fundraising and lobbying the government. Famously, she was also the inventor of the pie chart, presenting a pie to illustrate the horrifically large number of men dying of disease as opposed to casualties of war. The collection is set in the grounds of St Thomas hospital, close to Westminster Bridge, and makes an enjoyable Sunday afternoon visit. Good for families too.
