Northland Medical Museum

Eclectic collection of medical instruments, anaesthesia pieces, nursing notes, general equipment, photographs, memorabilia and some archival material. Dr John Swinney began saving outdated hospital heritage pieces some 30 years ago. The original collection has since been aumented with equipment from other Northland hospitals, local GPs and some pieces from outside the area. Some old items sit beside their modern counterparts. Currently, most displays are within Whangarei Hospital, but the tip of the iceberg can be viewed at The Cottage.
