Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology (University Of Melbourne) (1882)

Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences offers a unique insight into the human body and includes real human tissue specimens and historical anatomical models. The collection was established by Sir Harry Brookes Allen (1854 ? 1926) in the 1880s, and now includes over 10,000 specimens and objects used primarily for the teaching of anatomy and pathology. The museum is one of the largest medical collections of human remains in Australia. The main objective of the museum is to provide valuable educational resources for University of Melbourne students in the medical and related health disciplines, while also acting as a dynamic study and teaching space. While not normally open to the general public, tours of the museum are available for external health professionals and VCE student groups.
