Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology

Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology

One of Australia's largest collections of human tissue, animal anatomy and historical anatomical models, the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology at the University of Melbourne, is home to more than 12,000 specimens and artefacts.

Among the most well-known is Ned Kelly's death mask; a cast of his head taken immediately after he was hanged in 1880.

There are also specimens of lungs with tuberculosis, and a brain specimen of a young man from Melbourne, who was believed to have had syphilis and died in the 1920s of mercury poisoning.

Location
University of Melbourne, Medical Building, Corner of Grattan Street and Royal Parade, Parkville 3052, Victoria.

The Museum is located on Level 3 East of the main Medical Building (Building 181). Wheel chair access, toilets, parking and cafes are available on campus.

The Harry Brookes Allen Museum is not open to the public.

We are open to visitors on the University's annual Open Day, held in August.

Visits may be arranged for biological and medical professionals, researchers and students, at the discretion of the curator.
