Description

The RPH Museum is open to the general public Wednesday and Thursday from 9am to 2pm.

RPH Museum

The Royal Perth Hospital Museum takes visitors on a walk through the colourful history of the hospital from its opening in 1855, right through to the present day.

Established as a research resource centre for the hospital and the public, the artefacts displayed in the Museum portray the social development of Perth.

The medical equipment of the past provides a fascinating insight into the changes constantly taking place in the field of medicine, and each object within the Museum has a unique story to tell.

From a machine which supposedly cured acne by sending electric currents through the brain, to a lithotrite (an uncomfortable-looking probe with a chain attached) which removed stones from the bladder – each instrument gives you an insight into the hospital throughout the ages.

One of the most valued artefacts in the Museum is a box containing the first ever x-ray equipment in Australia. Imported from France by Dr W. J. Hancock, the Cold Cathode X-ray tubes assisted in examining patients in the hospital in the early 1900's.
