Music Archive of Monash University (MAMU) is a physical and digital collection of musical instruments, scores, field recordings, puppets and diverse other musical, dance and theatrical materials acquired since the foundation of the University’s Department of Music in 1965.
MAMU relies on the support and assistance of our volunteers and donors. Financial gifts over $2 are tax deductible and provide much needed help to continue operations. Please contact us if you wish to donate or volunteer.
MAMU is located in a suite of 8 rooms on the 4th floor of the Menzies Building at Monash University’s Clayton Campus. Visits are by appointment only and material must be viewed on the premises.
