This coming Saturday 14 March is the annual Back to Prince Henry Day.

Amongst the other activities, this is a great opportunity to visit the wonderful Nursing And Medical Museum and to learn about the history of the Prince Henry Hospital and the development of medicine in Australia.

The museum has a fascinating collection that includes a working iron lung, historical surgical instruments and heritage photographs. Former nurses, members of the Prince Henry Hospital Trained Nurses Association, will be on hand to tell you about the exhibits and their own experiences working in the hospital, to which they feel a very strong attachment.

The museum is at 2 Brodie Avenue, Little Bay and is open 10am – 4pm. All are welcome, it is free, and the museum is wheelchair accessible.
