Fodor's 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.
