Great for nurses to learn about Flo. I spent about an hour in the museum and learned more about how modern nursing was started.

I have now been twice to this museum. I have enjoyed it both times. I thought it was very interesting and I learned about Florence Nightingale and nursing. I liked that It was small and not filled with school groups.
