The Medical History Museum collection has grown through gifts from medical graduates, families and institutions. The core of the collection began with material related to the history of the Melbourne Medical School but has expanded to encompass the history of medicine in Victoria, Australia and internationally.
The Museum runs a changing exhibition program that encompasses a broad range of themes linking scientific discovery with society and culture. There is an opportunity for student and community groups to arrange curator led tours of these exhibitions and the permanent collection displays. The current exhibition is ‘The Art of Healing: Australian Indigenous Bush Medicine’, running until 2 March 2019.
The Museum’s Registrar, Alex Chubaty will discuss the permanent display of collection objects in three heritage cases, the Savory and Moore pharmacy which was donated and shipped to the Museum in 1971 from its original location in London, and the current temporary exhibition.
