Internationally significant museum collection

02 May 2023

An independent consultant has assessed the collection held by our Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History to be 'of national and international significance'.

Earlier this year, Dr Megan Cardamone of Circa Museum Services undertook a whole-of-collection significance assessment for the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History. Her assessment has determined the museum collection to be the largest and one of the most comprehensive of its kind in the world, and one of both national and international significance.

This finding is a testament to the foresight of Dr Geoffrey Kaye in acquiring such a broad collection and the generations of honorary curators and subsequent professional curators who have maintained and grown the collection.
