A visit to the New South Wales Museum of Disease is not for the faint-hearted. However, for those with a deadly curiosity, an inkling for the macabre, or are simply fascinated by the science and history behind deadly diseases and their treatments, then this museum will have you staring at specimens till the end of the day.
Visit the Museum of Human Disease and you will come face to face with over 2,500 human tissue specimens demonstrating hundreds of diseases and their complications.
Take a walk past jars and vials of amputated limbs, organs and other body parts so gruesome that you will not look away and learn how HIV/Aids, cancer, strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, genetic diseases and the effects of drugs on the human body.
