The Harry Daly Museum is devoted to the preservation, documentation and interpretation of the history of anaesthetic practice.

Highlighting uniquely Australian advancements and the innovative individuals who helped shape modern anaesthesia, the Museum aims to encourage interest in the local and global history of anaesthesia.
