Founded in 1858, Mutter Museum displays an array of medical equipment, biological samples, models, diagrams, and bizarre preserved specimens. The museum itself is a section of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, and includes preserved abnormal human organs, bones, and wax molds, intended to display the mystery and complexity of the human body. While many exhibits are strange and are presented as if in a Victorian-era museum, they also provide a great deal of information on the progression of medical technology. Be aware that this museum may not be suitable for the faint of heart or those easily disturbed.

Many natural science and biological wonders here both great and small. Obscure yet intriguing, some may find grotesque, others fascinating, yet truly interesting, especially if you are a dental/premed student, or even someone who just genuinely appreciates museums and learning. It is a small place, but don't let it fool you, it can keep you busy for a few hours easily. Lots of really cool and educational information all over the place! Several years ago this was actually this was our first date spot 🥰😍❤(my spouse and I). Been back many times ever since.
The Mütter Museum is truly a one of a kind experience that every individual should make time to experience in their lifetime. It is by far one of the most fascinating Museum's out there, and they host countless fun and exciting events throughout the year. So, if like me, you find yourself constantly updating your own post Pandemic To-do list with interesting and exciting places you want to visit, be sure to include the Mütter somewhere near the top.
