The museum was created to record and preserve the Hospital's heritage. The artifacts in the collection were actually used at Rutherford Hospital. The design features vignettes that showcase several areas of hospital life, including the 1906 Surgical Room, Nursing School and patient rooms. A beautiful mural located in the museum, painted by artist Clive Hayes, depicts the different stages through the century of the hospital's history. It is a self-guided tour.
