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. The museum also highlights the work of Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell.
To provide an extra level of safety for your students, the Museum is offering learning programming to schools on days that we’re closed to the public: Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You can therefore have exclusive access to the Museum and can book time to have a self-guided visit and meet Miss Nightingale!
We’d recommend also booking a talk to enhance your self-guided visit. The following prices are additional to the cost of admission:
|Tour or Talk Type
|Sit-Down Talk with Director of Learning
|Florence Nightingale Performance
If you’re not able to visit the Museum in person, we can provide a live Zoom lecture on Nightingale’s life and legacy with a virtual tour of the Museum’s star collection items – either delivered by our Director of Learning or Miss Nightingale herself!
Live Zoom Talk with Director of Learning: £50 for 35-40min.
Live Zoom Talk with Florence Nightingale: £ 110 for 35-40min
