When Florence Nightingale returned from the Crimean War she was a national celebrity, one whose fame has endured to this day. But who was Florence Nightingale and what had led her to the war in the first place?

The Florence Nightingale Comes Home exhibition, timed to coincide with the bicentenary of Nightingale's birth, sheds new light on the Lady with the Lamp. It covers her struggle to escape her family, her efforts during the Crimean War, and her work to improve sanitary conditions in homes and in hospitals.

Join the exhibition curator for an exhibition walk through and learn about the stories behind the items on display.
