Very interesting and I do recommend it. The museum is small, however full of history. There are lots of nice pictures which show the old time. And all about the famous “ lady with the lamp”. 👍

Definitely worth seeing, my 7 year old enjoyed it too, he found the kids activity sheet and the spanish influenza exhibition quite interesting. Groupon deal was great as I think that is the correct value.

This small, but detailed museum is to the left of the main entrance of St. Thomas' Hospital in the lower part of Gassiot House, Lambeth Palace Road. The displays are well set out with quite a lot of reading, but very interesting. A very informative history which trainee or future nurses would find enlightening. The only criticism being that it needs a clearer indication of the route to be taken around the exhibition. Allow 1 1/2 - 2 hours to complete the tour.

Took my elderly mother who started nursing at 18. Small enough museum for her to walk around with ease crammed full of facts and photos. She enjoyed so a worthwhile visit.
