Florence Nightingale MuseumIt is only fitting that the Florence Nightingale Museum is housed inside the St. Thomas hospital - after all, Nightingale helped found the hospital in 1860. The famous nurse first came to fame serving during the Crimean War. Later, she had a prominent role in the training of fellow nurses and turned nursing into a respectable profession for women. She also worked to raise the standards of hospitals and the health care system, and published several books on hygiene. The Florence Nightingale Museum holds 53 of her 200 published works, as well as portraits of her and personal letters written during the Crimean War. There is also a life-size reconstruction of a Crimean ward scene and a 20-minute audio-visual presentation to showcase how she went from a quiet, introverted child to an internationally recognised figure.
