Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History


Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History

Founded in 1935 by Dr Geoffrey Kaye (1903-1986), the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History chronicles the history of anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain medicine.

It is one of the largest and most comprehensive anaesthetic history collections in the world.

Through its many activities, the museum explores the important impact the specialty of anaesthesia has had on society and its continuing contribution to the advancement of medicine.

The nucleus of the collection was amassed by Dr Kaye between 1935 and 1955 and includes rare items dating back to 1846. Items include a 1870s nitrous oxide gasometer and rare research material, such as Dr Joseph Clover’s 1846-1853 Lecture and Case Notes.

Dr Kaye's vision was: "To cultivate an interest in anaesthesia and promote the development of the practice among students, physicians and the general public through the display and use of a wide variety of anaesthetic equipment.

A pioneering Melbourne anaesthetist, Dr Kaye promoted the development of research and teaching in anaesthesia in the 1930s and 1940s. He forged strong links with prominent international anaesthetists in the emerging specialty, establishing a scientific basis for a specialty that had hitherto been entirely practical

Visitors can see the collection during business hours and may arrange a guided tour by contacting the curator.
