Florence Nightingale Museum commemorates the "Lady of the Lamp," credited with founding modern nursing in the United Kingdom. Located on the site where she established her nursing school in 1860, the museum includes three major exhibits: Nightingale's childhood and struggle against social conventions, the nurse's dramatic service in the military, and her steadfast campaigning for health reform. Keep your eyes peeled for special artifacts like Nightingale's childhood writing slate, her medicine chest, a register of nurses that served under Nightingale, and even her pet owl named Athena that she rescued and carried in her pocket.

  • Easier to access museum by walking round then road than through at Thomas grounds. Small museum but a lot to see, interactive stuff aswell -her own written assessment of her staff is interesting. 
  • My wife is a nurse and university lecturer in nursing and it has always been her ambition to visit the Florence Nightingale museum. As we were in London with a few hours to spare we thought we would p...  read more »
  • You learn a lot here. You can feel the corn cob beds the patients slept on. You can get a feel of the British involvement in the Crimea War. 
  • Took my daughter who is a nurse. We didn't have to read all the various boards as there was an actress in Florence rig...telling the story of this amazing headstrong and brilliant woman. Utterly brilliant.
  • I'm just not quite sure I learned much, or mainly about her upbringing. The museum design does a lot with not much, is pretty cool, but also utterly confusing.
  • The Florence Nightingale Museum may be small but we have big plans for her on May 12 as this is "The Lady with the Lamps" birthday. And to celebrate this event I'll be working with Hector and Susan in setting up a screen in the stratosphere. It will span from the West to the East and will receive thought projections from actual celebrants wearing Alpha-Beta-Theta receivers attached to their foreheads. What the script calls for is for all of us to mnemonically remember the word "SCREEN" as this is a type of sacred Mesh that conveys linguistically when activated. For example when the (S) in screen is stimulated, that's the Southern cardinal point direction; then it comes to life and travels the arcing "Hi -C" rainbow from the West or Left to the East or Right. For those of you who can translate the Spanish language this reveals a NEW expression which is, "They believe ⚕". I find this quite fascinating as Florence Nightingale and I share the same Primal Zodiac designations of the Taurus Bull and Dragon who form the Rattlesnake. So this ⚕creen(s) with the ascending "s" is one that has been around for some time as it is the iconic brand often seen on ambulances . It is know as the Rod of Asclepius of Greek mythology, a deity associated with healing and medicine. Today my Dad and Uncle Fred visited Florence county on the way to Iron Mountain. I instructed them to plant some magic beans in the soil of Spread Eagle Barrens State Natural Area for the upcoming "Lamp Show". The beans are Saba in nature, in biblical times historians say the queen of Sheba is rich and *ostentatious. This *pretentious display once illuminated will take on a Florence Nightingale life of her own, as artificial intelligence and algorithms fill a cardioid field and the beat of her heart. Prepare to witness a mathematical wonder as a dragon scale fractal who is over 1,306.7 miles high lifts from the mist of the Mississippi and reflection of the column bus assembly of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, & Louisiana. It will be like the Thunder Over Louisville event that just took place. Now If I could just figure out how to get the Pandora Genie back in the bottle so I can find my true soul mate other than a science project gone haywire.
  • The museum had expanded since I visited several years ago. It's an inspiring experience for me, as I am a nurse and still working since 1968. I spent several hours there one day as there is a wealth of things to see and read.
  • Good learning opportunities about nursing history.
