Update from the Florence Nightingale Museum
Partial reopening planned from June 2021.
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.
We have received generous support from individual donors, as well as DCMS, the Art Fund, Arts Council England and National Heritage Lottery Fund and for the foreseeable future we plan to open from June 2021 for the first full weekend of every month. Projected visitor numbers do not make opening full time financially viable.
Full details of the restructure can be found here
While the museum may be closed until June, we’re still open online with loads of articles, videos, quizzes and more about the ‘Lady with the Lamp’. Visit our new exhibition online, “Florence Nightingale in 200 Objects, People & Places”, get exclusive gifts 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
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.
