There are uniforms from nursing and military personnel. Army records and photographs, badges, embroidery, a weaving loom, medals, documentation, souvenirs and artwork.
Not being a big fan of medical equipment this area is not one I would focus on. Never the less it has been preserved here. This being the site of a veteran's hospital there is much vintage medical equipment collected, much of it still in working order. The curator is hoping that the museum will be able to showcase different memorabilia in separate sections to better enhance the collection.
The museum opened in 1992 on the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Repatriation General Hospital in Daw Park, and was originally based in the hospital post office. This was a corrugated iron building, as were many of the original buildings on the site. Images of the old post office building and other memorabilia can be seen here The museum was established by David Ennis, and his late wife Maxine.
