Melbourne Medical Museum

Australia's largest medical museum featuring a 19th century pharmacy. 

The museum features Australia’s largest medical collection and consists of more than 5000 items, including amputation kits, bleeding equipment, and historic microscopes. The museum also includes the Savory and Moore Pharmacy, a working pharmacy from London that was in operation from 1849 up until 1968.  The pharmacy was dismantled and reconstructed in the museum exactly as it was, complete with show globes and original window cases.
