Florence Nightingale Museum

The Florence Nightingale Museum celebrates the life and work of the best-known figure in nursing history.

Learn about the work of the pioneering 19th-century British nurse and health reformer, known as ‘The Lady with the Lamp’.

Did you know Florence Nightingale was the first female member of the Royal Statistical Society? That she owned over 60 cats throughout her life and had a pet owl called Athena? Do you know why she was called Florence?

Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing, one of our greatest Victorians and a female icon in her own lifetime. She is still an inspiration to nurses around the globe.
