Nursing and Medical Museum

The Nursing and Medical Museum was established to showcase the Coast/Prince Henry Hospital from 1881 - 2003.


The Prince Henry Nurses and Medical Museum seeks to preserve and maintain our hospital's historical heritage that began on the headlands of Little Bay in 1881.

A place for the sick in a beautiful setting which enhanced the healing process. The Museum collection consists of past hospital equipment, a research library and fascinating picture galleries which are accessible to all.

We seek to continue with the culture of Health Care by running programs that educate the community on important health care issues.

To embrace all, especially future generations, the elderly and our local Aboriginal community.

We honour the role our Doctors, Nurses and others from this hospital who daily displayed their professional abilities in the healing process.
