About the Museum

HBA Museum of Anatomy and Pathology aims to be both a world-class reference collection of human anatomy and pathology material and a vibrant study hub for educational and research activities. Taking a scientific and ethically-considered approach, the museum provides teaching resources for relevant University of Melbourne curricula and educational services for external institutions. The museum further offers unique public engagement opportunities, both virtual and physical, which aim to enhance knowledge transfer and broaden scientific discourse. The museum actively pursues maintenance and expansion of the collection, while also evolving to reflect our ever-changing understanding of the human body.
