Our Friends Are Our Legacy
Preserving history takes time, effort and passion, but there is also a cost to maintaining the museum building, restoring artefacts, and the day to day running of The Medical Museum. We are a non-profit making enterprise, so every dollar donated goes back into preserving our medical heritage.
For a small annual fee you could help preserve and grow the collection, and inspire a new generation to become involved.
Our Friends receive preferential bookings to all Historical Society meetings and tours of the museum, and will receive regular updates.
