"Mutter Museum - TOTALLY GNARLY!" Muetter Museum Tip by suzannehye

Muetter Museum, Philadelphia: 10 reviews and 7 photos

  Inside the Mutter Museum
by suzannehye

The Mutter Museum is located is the medical museum of the College of Physicians. It contains many skeletons, skulls, anatomical anomalies in jars...loads of interesting stuff but not for the weak of stomach! There is a stack of drawers, each drawer containing probably 50 items, all of which were taken from the esophagus - coins, toys, beads, buttons... There are changing exhibits and docent tours. The docent leading a tour while we were there is also a "living exhibit" and could not have been more helpful, friendly or knowledgable. This is quite a place! Just up the street is the culinary institute - I understand when school is in session you can eat there, a gourmet meal cooked by the students. (If you're not off your feed after the museum!)
