Would love that this tour be on more than one day – a Thursday tour would be great for me, but I understand that it is a working hospital & that it may not be easy to organise more than one visit per year.
Hi Bernadette, please feel free to contact the museum directly at Sydhosp.firstname.lastname@example.org to see if this is possible. We hope you get to see it as it really is a gem! 🙂
