Vernon-Roberts Museum

The Vernon-Roberts Museum houses South Australia's most extensive collection of human disease examples and detailed anatomical prosections.

The museum was designed as a unique teaching space for the Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences as well as a showcase for the extensive collections. At any given time, approximately 400 (of over 2,000) potted specimens are on display.
