    Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing, one of our greatest Victorians and a female icon in her own lifetime. 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.
