Explore the museum to discover all about Florence’s childhood as a daughter in a wealthy family; how she fought to become a nurse against her parents' wishes; her work during the Crimean War and how she campaigned for better healthcare for ordinary people. See the actual lamp she carried which earned her the nickname The Lady With The Lamp, meet her pet owl and see her medicine chest.
