A sterilization container for sterilizing and storing medical instruments includes a base tray and one or more insert trays removably mounted in a cavity defined by the side and bottom walls of the base tray. Insert trays are supported on ribs projecting transversely into the base tray cavity which cooperates with the side walls of the base tray to define a groove which receives a circumferential wall defined on a turned over portion of an insert tray, thereby inhibiting the latter from migrating to the bottom of the base tray. The ribs have lateral side surface to engage the circumferentially extending wall of the insert trays to restrict lateral movement of the insert trays relative to the base tray to that distance which brings the circumferentially extending walls of the base tray into engagement with the lateral surface of one of the ribs.
