This year marks a significant milestone for The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), as we celebrate 150 years of wonderful achievements.
To commemorate this milestone and our rich history, we are pleased to share with you our new archives and collections website.
The RCH archives and collections form a large and invaluable record of the history of an important Australian paediatric institution. Spanning 150 years, the diverse collection comprises photographs, films, textiles and equipment, which convey the hospital’s beginnings, growth and innovations. Daily experiences of RCH staff and patients are vividly rendered by these historic materials.
We hope you enjoy exploring!
