The Florence Nightingale Museum is located next to St Thomas' Hospital.

The museum tells the real story of Florence Nightingale, "the lady with the lamp", from her Victorian childhood to her experiences in the Crimean, through to her years as a campaigner for health reform.

The museum explains her legacy and also celebrates nursing today.
