Florence Nightingale Museum Review

Compact, highly visual, and engaging, this museum on the grounds of St. Thomas's hospital is dedicated to Florence Nightingale, who founded the first school of nursing and played a major role in establishing modern standards of health care. Exhibits are divided into three areas: one is devoted to Nightingale's Victorian childhood, the others to her work tending soldiers during the Crimean War (1854–1856) and her subsequent health-care reforms. The museum incorporates Nightingale's own books and famous lamp as well as interactive displays of medical instruments and medicinal herbs.
