Discover the story of ‘The Lady with the Lamp’, why she went to the Crimea, how she improved conditions for the soldiers and nurses and what happened as a result of her work.
The session begins with an interactive performance by the museum’s own ‘Florence Nightingale’ describing her life and work. This is then followed by self-directed activities in the museum. Please note that due to the size of the Museum, we can only accommodate up to 30 pupils at a time. If you’re bringing two classes (one for a morning and one for an afternoon session) the second group cannot visit the Museum whilst the first group has their session.
I thought it was exceptional. This trip is always the best one we go on every year and the one enjoyed most by the children and I have been teaching for a long time and arranged a lot of trips!
