A Visit with Miss Nightingale

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.

Based on our popular Key Stage 1 school session ‘A Visit with Miss Nightingale’, this session is for homeschooling families to help add to children’s learning around Nightingale. The session is aimed at children aged 5-7 but older children are more than welcome to join in the session.

  • Friday 1st July 2022, 11:00am – 12:30pm
  • Age Recommendation: 5-7
  • £10 per child
  • One adult free per family and children aged 4 and under are also free.
  • Any additional adults will need to purchase an adult ticket on the door on arrival.

If you can’t make the special event please visit us during our regular times as there is always plenty to see and discover. We run a variety of family activities across the year and ‘Florence Nightingale’ can be found in the museum every first and third Saturday of each month.


We also have a variety of resources available for your use.
