Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing, one of England's greatest Victorians and an inspiration to thousands of women in her own lifetime.  Explore the museum to discover all about Florence’s childhood as a daughter in a wealthy family and how she fought to become a nurse against her parents' wishes.  Find out about her work during the Crimean War and how she campaigned for better healthcare for ordinary people.  She even wrote a book on nursing to help people care for their families; 'Nursing, What It Is and What It Is Not' is still in print today! See the actual lamp she carried which earned her the nickname The Lady With The Lamp, meet her pet owl and see the medicine chest she used during the war.  Florence was almost as famous as Queen Victoria in her own lifetime and she is still celebrated today; she even has an asteroid and a battleship named after her.

Florence is part of the National Curriculum during Key Stage 1, so bring your 5-6 year olds to the museum to bring their learning to life.
