I like the design of the museum. It is quite small but fairly informative. I really liked the fake flowers, they looked wonderful!
What an interesting little known museum this is.We found it educational,informative and thankful for our NHS ! The museum consists of 1 large room cleverly divided up into 3 colour coded sections. It is so easy to find,just over Westminster bridge,in St Thomas's hospital ,it's well signposted.
Our children recently studied Florence Nightingale at school so this visit helped cap off their studies. It has an interesting history of war medicine as well as details of Florence herself. Also some good educational activities for the kids. Very nice staff as well.
Went with a group of student nurses and paid £4.80 each to look at a fake hedge with photos hidden in it. Really surprised at how small it was and how little of Florence's actual possessions it contained, took us a very short amount of time to look round.

A lovely little museum, although overpriced for what it is. The children loved it. Lots of Florence Nightingale's personal things.
Had an extra day to explore London and ended up at this museum, never thought she had such an influence on nursing and her stubbornness to go with. She truly was a great lady, worth the see.
The museum was well done. It is fittingly located at the St Thomas Hospital. It was wonderful to see many of her personal things. This is a woman who changed the world, countless thousands are alive because of her teaching. Every woma can look to her as a positive role model. I would have likes to see more.
I enjoyed my visit in this museum. I agree that it is a little expensive for the size of this museum. I did find the layout confusing as well. It is worthwhile if you wish to learn more about the heroic British females. Lots of information and pictures.
Sited underneath St Thomas' hospital, this small hospital is full of memorabilia, photos and Stories that bring the stories of Florence to life. Also mention of the other major figures of the Crimean War and an exploration of her later life and her impact on later nursing practice.
The entry fee for this museum is relatively high, and I expected more, quite honestly. There were some interesting exhibits, but it really was pretty small. Odd that it was hard to follow the logical direction of the visit, considering the size! There are so many fantastic free museums and galleries in London, that I can't really recommend this.
