The children will be welcomed to the Museum by an actress in role as Miss Nightingale and experience a 30 minute performance. Miss Nightingale describes her life, why she went to the Crimea, how she made it better for the soldiers and nurses, and what happened as a result of her work.
Following the performance, the children will take part in hands-on self led activities throughout the Museum – “Discovering Florence”. Children have the opportunity to handle real and replica objects and look at photographs and prints while going around the gallery. Miss Nightingale will also be on hand to assist with these. If time allows at the end, Miss Nightingale will show your class a replica Crimean nurses’ and a soldiers’ uniform, which can be tried on.
