Supporting the Collection

The 150th Anniversary of Melbourne Medical School has greatly raised the profile and interest in the Medical History Museum. It has resulted in many of Melbourne Medical school alumni and the broader making contact with the museum. We would like this to continue into the future to build a stronger more vital museum and increase the scope and breadth of our collection. We are interested in hearing your stories about the history of medicine. If you wish to donate items or share information we would be most interested. Similarly the museum needs resources to continue to improve its exhibition and storage facilities. If you are interested in contributing funds or items to the collection please let us know.

For all enquiries relating to supporting the collection please contact the curator of the Medical History Museum.
