Florence Nightingale Museum

The Florence Nightingale Museum aims to grow as the international centre for preserving Florence Nightingale's heritage and interpreting the relevance of her life and work for the benefit of the present and future generations.

Florence Nightingale founded the first school of nursing at St. Thomas' Hospital in 1860, and over the last century the Hospital and School have preserved and added to a unique collection of Florence Nightingale's personal mementoes, clothing, furniture, books, letters and portraits, as well as Crimean War relics and nursing material. However, only since the Museum opened in February 1989 has this material been on view to the public.
