About us

Specimens from the Museum of Human Disease

The Museum of Human Disease is located at UNSW in Kensington. Our museum houses over 2,500 diseased human tissues specimens. The Museum was established in 1959 by Professor Donald Wilhelm, the foundation Professor of Pathology at UNSW. The Museum of Human Disease is open to all members of the public.

Our museum's objective is to provide a space that enables all people to make educated decisions about their health and lifestyle choices. We endeavour to provide our visitors with an experience which can inform them and challenge them.
