Royal Adelaide Hospital

This historical display was quite small considering the vast history the Royal Adelaide Hospital would have, It was up on the first floor in the foyer area, an unusual place and very noisy. There was an impressive range of nurses uniforms, medical instruments, information on Adelaide Lunatic Asylum, optical equipment and microscopes. It was quite awkward to photograph due to building lighting but well worth a visit. I would hope this exhibition is made available more often, or even better as a permanent display. Many of us have visited the RAH but had more pressing medical problems to think about the history, but this could be a welcome distraction.. It was also interesting walking through the buildings on the site, to see the wonderful workmanship in the Nurses Quarters to the ultra modern IMVS building. A quick but informative time spent here.
