I admit I dont remember much about her from school. So it was like learning all over again. They have regular exhibits. Movie type exhibits. Some you can press the button for an audio introduction. Would be good for kids also.

Popped in here after a visit to the hospital. It's reasonably priced at £7.50 for an adult which was even cheaper with military discount. Compared to other museums I've been it is very small but there is so much to see and learn. The staff...More

Located at St Thomas Hospital, this is a small museum all on a single floor. It details her life in three separate areas from growing up as a privileged child, to her war service and how she impacted hospital policies, especially regarding nursing. Very interesting...More

We enjoyed this interactive museum and the life of Florence Nightingale. We did find it rather difficult to navigate the different areas ie where to actually start and the pattern to continue. It wasn't very clear and I would urge the administration to provide more...More

It's a small little museum but it does the trick in telling the history of this famous nurse. It's divided up into the different periods of her life & her accomplishments. I enjoyed reading the facts of her life, especially her bravery & passion for...More

Yes the story is really nice and it worth a visit. But if you are expecting a peculiar visit about nurses or an interactive tour, it is not the best offer in London. The profile of Florence Nightingale is great also to reflect upon how...More

We spent over an hour in this delightful and carefully presented museum. It had considerable material belonging to Florence Nightingale and gave an insight into the difficulties she faced in Turkey. We were pleasantly surprised by the scale of personal items covering her early years...More

This delightful museum is a specialist museum for those interested in healthcare and Florence Nightingale herself. It is amazing to actually hear her voice, a rare experience and we would have paid just for this privilege. It's a calm, albeit small and delightful view into...More

Could not quite work out a logical order to walk around this museum and the noise of the presentation to a school party disturbed my attention, however there were interesting facts to absorb and interesting videos to watch

I went by myself and spent just over 1.5 hours, itcdependsvon how much you read and what your interests are. The time you said is more than enough. Enjoy!
How can I obtain tickets prior to our visit? I'm advised to do so but am unable to do so online!! TripAdvisor will only sell a tour ticket in which the museum is included!! We need to visit Wednesday, Sept 28 as soon at you open (10 am) as our time is very limited! Help! Susan Rains
