Secondary Schools

We offer a variety of options for secondary school groups.

A visit to the museum supports the GCSE ‘Medicine through Time’ syllabus, and allows students to investigate who Florence Nightingale was and what she did for nursing and healthcare. They are able to discover who the real person was and deepen their understanding of Florence’s achievements, moving beyond the ‘Lady with the Lamp’ legend.

Admission Prices

Adult – £12

Student – £7 (17+)

Child – £6 (16 and under)

To book, please contact us with the details of your group and your preferred dates, as well as the type of visit you would like.

Museum Shop

Don’t forget to make time to visit the shop as part of your school trip. We have a wide range of  items for you to take home as a souvenir of your visit.

Risk Assessment Guidance

Our risk assessment guidance is available to download here. A pre-visit is recommended so that a risk-assessment can be carried out by the lead teachers.
