We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive tour of the Marks-Hirschfeld Museum of Medical History, home to one of the most comprehensive and significant collections of medical material heritage in Australia.

The collection includes medical instruments, photographs, books, personal effects and artworks, all housed in the heritage-listed Mayne Medical School building. With this collection of objects, the Museum celebrates the rich history of Queensland’s medical practice and people.
