Attraction Information

Enjoy an educational day out with the kids in London at the Florence Nightingale Museum. Take an inside look into the life of the most famous nurse in the world and discover the captivating story of the little girl who grew up to become the founder of modern nursing.

This awesome London museum is filled with curious artefacts. You’ll get the chance  to peek into Florence Nightingale's medicine chest and meet her pet owl. See the actual lamp Florence carried during the Crimean War and find out how it earned her the nickname The Lady With The Lamp. Visit on the last Saturday of the month and you can hear the story of the lamp from Florence herself!  

Your kids are aged 5-6? A visit to the Florence Nightingale Museum will be particularly useful to them, as Florence is part of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1. There’s no better way to learn about history than to see it come to life!
