Welcome to the Florence Nightingale Museum

Update from the Florence Nightingale Museum!

The Florence Nightingale Museum has decided to remain closed for December 2020.  We realise that our visitors love coming to the museum but are aware that following the current lockdown many people will be preparing for Christmas during this time. With winter being a historically quiet time for the Museum and a pre-planned Christmas closure, we feel this is the safest and most sensible option to protect our resources.

We plan to reopen on Thursday 7th January 2021.

While the museum may be closed, we’re still open online with loads of articles, videos, quizzes and more about the ‘Lady with the Lamp’. Check back here for our new exhibition, “Florence Nightingale in 200 Objects, People & Places”, get exclusive Christmas presents from our web shop, or follow us on Twitter for the latest updates and newest digital content.

We are still taking bookings for our new zoom talks to take place in December!

As an independent charity, the museum is grateful for the generosity and support of its donors, sponsors, and its loyal visitors. If you’re not able to visit please donate now so we can keep Nightingale’s legacy alive. See you soon!
