Florence Nightingale: A niche and free museum in Istanbul
Florance Nightingale Museum in  Istanbul has a variety of museums and there are some you can visit with no charge.

One of the best free museums in Istanbul is the Florence Nightingale Museum. A museum offers you a time travel to the Art of Nursing in the Crimean War. A story of the lady with the lamp. Florence Nightingale was a celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. She came to prominence while serving as a nurse during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers.

The museum itself is within the Selimiye Army Barracks, built in 1799, which was the military hospital where Nightingale and her students developed the nursing techniques that saw her go down in medical history. Inside you can explore her personal living quarters, as well as the room that served as an operating theatre.
