Western Australian Medical Museum
Built in 1895, the Western Australian Medical Museum was Perth's first maternity hospital. Now called Harvey House, the old hospital has been transformed into a museum. It contains displays exploring many facets in relation to the history of medical practice including nursing, dentistry, early doctoring and the famous Royal Flying Doctor Service. Exhibits include 100 years of dentistry, a 1930s operating theater and an iron lung in use during a post-war polio epidemic.
There was lots and lots inside this museum - more and more rooms. Mostly old medical instruments and re-created scenes etc (surgical, dental, midwives etc). Some interesting information on teh flying doctors. A few interactive displays but mostly just looking and reading. It was very quiet too.
This museum is a real find. Each room is a cluttered treasure trove, and you never know what you're going to find next. Refreshingly free from having been 'modernised', the Medical Museum is itself a piece of history.
Staff are friendly and knowledgable, and (best of all) it only cost a couple of dollars to enter. I thoroughly recommend this place for a pleasant Sunday afternoon.
