Visiting this museum was very special to me as I am mother of a nurse. Most of facts about Florence Nightingale’s life I had already learned from my daughter since her graduation days. My daughter and also Florence have taught me how persistent and committed people nurses are.
‘Florence Nightingale became a living legend as the ‘Lady with the Lamp’. She led the nurses caring for thousands of soldiers during the Crimean War and helped save the British army from medical disaster.
This was just one of Florence’s many achievements. She was also a visionary health reformer, a brilliant campaigner, the most influential woman in Victorian Britain and its Empire, second only to Queen Victoria herself.’
