MAMU holds hundreds of physical and digital items within its repositories, which include many generously donated artefacts and those from bequests. There are many rare and unique items which provide invaluable tools for scholars within academia and for researchers within the wider community.
This repository features a diverse range of material including Aboriginal, concert hall and popular musical arts, as well as a digitised collection of Australian scores and sheet music.
