Piltdown man Skulduggery in the museum
The Harry Brookes Allen Museum contains models of prehistoric human fossils that turned out to be one of the greatest scientific hoaxes ever.
The Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology is one of Australia's largest collections of real human tissue specimens and historical anatomical models, offering students and researchers a unique insight into the human body.
The museum provides valuable educational resources for University of Melbourne students in the medical and related anatomical disciplines, while also acting as a dynamic study and teaching space. Although the museum is not normally open to the public, tours of the museum are available for health professionals and medical students.
