The morgue consists of two examination rooms, one dating back much earlier than the other. The morgues form part of a university complex, and were used in the past for teaching and training purposes.
The older of the two contains a single white porcelain slab in the centre which incorporates an integral sink. Surrounding the room there are various other worktops and cabinets containing various medical implements. A range of dissection and cutting tools are on the morgue slab.
The more modern room contains one metal examination table, and it appears one further table existed in the same room at some point in the past. A bank of tissue samples, arranged in drawers stands at the back of the room. A further room contains a collection of human organs and tissue samples preserved in formaldehyde.
