The Collection

The Harry Daly Museum collection reflects the development of Australian anaesthetic practice from the 1840s to the present. It currently consists of around 2000 objects. These objects range from the earliest ether inhalers of the 1840s, through improvisations in WWI, to further developments in engineering design and pharmaceuticals today.
