In 2020, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) will celebrate its 150th anniversary since foundation. In honour of this achievement, the hospital Archives and Collections will be displayed in exhibitions that showcase the innovation, collaboration and advocacy that has made the hospital an esteemed institution. Exhibitions will include online galleries, pop-up shows and long-term installations on show within the Historical Room & Gallery.

The Archives and Collections team have developed a range of commemorative merchandise to celebrate the extraordinary impact 150 years of great care has had on the children of Victoria, Australia and beyond. The RCH Heritage Series presents highlights of the RCH Archives and Collections through fine art prints, postcards, tea towels and books. These items are for sale through the RCH online shop.
