Temporary Exhibition of the Year

Many congratulations to the Florence Nightingale Museum for their Spanish Flu Exhibition, which is excellent and really innovative.  The Museum well deserved to win these two awards and the Fellowship are delighted for them.

Why did you choose to become a Nightingale Nurse?

The Museum is calling for stories to display for their new ‘Family Corner’ from all Nightingale Nurses, which aims to answer visitors’ questions about how to begin a career in nursing and inspire others to consider this journey. If you think you can help with your story then please email or post your answers to: [email protected] or David Green, Museum Director, St Thomas’ Hospital, 2 Lambeth Palace Road, London SE1 7EW (further information on page 61 of the Summer 2019 Journal).

Florence Nightingale in 200 Objects, Places and People – tell us your ideas!

Our bicentenary will tell the story of Florence Nightingale’s life and her legacy through 200 objects, people and places. We will discuss the people who have been inspired by Florence, the places she worked or the places that were named in her honour, and the objects which capture interesting stories about her or the people she inspired. As we plan our exhibition, we want to hear from you!  Do you know about something that we could include?  Anyone who can help or has any ideas for this should email their suggestions to:[email protected] or in writing to David Green, Museum Director, St Thomas’ Hospital, 2 Lambeth Palace Road, London SE1 7EW.
