Melbourne Medical History Museum

Explore, inquire and enjoy the social history of medicine and its role in society through a diverse exhibition program.

The Medical History Museum and its collection were formally established in 1967 in conjunction with the Department of Medical History, under the professorship of Kenneth Russell. The museum itself was opened with generous funding from the Wellcome Institute (now Wellcome Trust), London, in support of study and research in medical history.

The collection at this time consisted of a small but well-selected range of medical artefacts that Professor Russell had gradually acquired over time, with a view to opening a museum. This was in keeping with the long-standing tradition of leading medical schools across the world to develop their historical resources as a study collection.

The Medical History Museum is located on level 2 of the Brownless Biomedical Library, which is located behind the Medical Building on Grattan Street.

Building number: 182
