Update from the Florence Nightingale Museum
Regretfully, but inevitably, the Florence Nightingale Museum has organised a major review of its operations in response to the continuing effects of the pandemic. The review was designed to protect the Museum and its collections for the long term. If changes are not made now, the Museum will become financially insolvent before markets recover and visitors return in significant numbers. Full details of the restructure can be found here
We have received generous support from individual donors, as well as DCMS, the Art Fund, Arts Council England and National Heritage Lottery Fund and are currently holding monthly open weekends, details of the open weekends can be seen here. Projected visitor numbers do not make opening full time financially viable.
While the museum may be closed on most days, we are still taking bookings for schools and groups throughout this period, offering a unique chance to book an exclusive visit.
As an independent charity, the museum is grateful for the generosity and support of its donors, sponsors, and its loyal visitors. While we are closed, please donate now so we can keep Nightingale’s legacy alive for the future.
