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.

What a great weekend we have had! The Australian and New Zealand Cardiac Society met last weekend in Wellington for their annual scientific meeting and Brave Hearts featured on the agenda! We had doctors and nurses from Australian and New Zealand touring the exhibition with our trustees Judy Murphy and Alan Kerr.
