Brave Hearts, the new interactive exhibition developed by the Auckland Medical Museum Trust, brings the pioneering work of New Zealand’s heart clinicians and the bravery of their patients to life.

Through interactive displays the exhibition explains how the heart works, how we investigate heart disease and the largely untold story of New Zealand’s leading role in the evolution of heart surgery.

A must-do experience for the whole family.

Brave Hearts

We want to celebrate those brave medical pioneers who rode a new wave of medicine to learn and teach how to repair the damaged hearts of newborn babies, children and adults.

A shout-out to the wonderful Heart Kids charity in New Zealand, represented here by Billie-Jean. We have had quite a number of Heart Kids coming through with their families, meeting their cardiologists outside the hospital and learning about the heart at the same time. Keep up the great work you are doing at Heart Kids New Zealand! #HeartKidsNZ
