Philadelphia Local Customs: 60 reviews and 65 photos
Philadelphia just may lead the nation in weird museums starting with the Mutter Museum, home of President Grover Cleveland's cancerous jawbone (in a jar), John Marshall's bladder stones, and a section of John Wilkes Booth's neck. Here you can also see a "fascinating" collection of 2,000 things doctors have removed from people's stomachs.
The collection of more than 20,000 items is designed to give the layman a beneath-the-surface perspective of what physicians study.
The web site is for the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
For more weird museums see my Philly Travelogue.
