My husband and I are both nurses. Amidst enjoying the usual sights and sounds of London for the first time, I made sure that I would not miss, perhaps, a once in lifetime opportunity to see this museum. Staff was very helpful, and they even had a cute gift shop of all things Florence. It is a museum about her,... More

Visited this museum as we were staying close to the London Eye. A great museum. All set within one room but extremely well laid out. Lots of interesting artefacts and displays for all ages. Spent a busy and informative hour at the museum.

I put this on the itinerary for my mom, a registered nurse since the 70's. It was fantastic! What a great collection of items displaying the beginnings of nursing as a profession. Very educational and in many ways, a walk down memory lane for my mom.

This is a small but well done little museum dedicated to the life of Florence Nightingale. It is in one large room with 3 different groupings related to various phases of her life - her early years, the Crimean War and after the Crimean War. It's displayed well but only took about an hour to view. If you are a... More

This is a small museum which tells the story of FN very well with a range of topical pictures , recordings etc and set out in three displays . It took me a while to realise that the small green lights on the displays were actually ''peepholes'' with small displays behind them so be sure to look out for these

This is a small museum in the grounds of St Thomas' Hospital on the south bank near Westminster Bridge. The name says it all as this museum is about the early life and work of Florence Nightingale especially during the Crimean War. The exhibits are house within what are essentially partition walls with windows in them but the descriptions are... More

Very interesting museum about the life of Florence Nightingale. The museum is tucked away underneath the hospital near the London Eye. My wife, a nurse, loved it. It is worth a visit if you are interested in nursing.

Tucked away under St Thomas' Hospital this informative museum lies. It's only £7 entry. It was a great experience learning about this special lady's life and all that she achieved

Visited this museum in the grounds of St Thomas hospital with my family during half term. The museum staff were very helpful and friendly. The museum was small but told the story of this great lady well. Worth a visit if you like the history of nursing or care Older children would benefit from this more than younger children
