Lists about this place
A medical museum of ancient past. My friends lived around the corner from the Mutter Museum..my favorite attraction is the drawers that contain “objects people have swallowed” “things in formaldehyde” and “brains in order of size small to large”.
Check out some skeletons and surgical objects used in the past..this will make you thank god for modern technology.over 6 years ago
then this is the place to go! I’ve only been once when I was in high school, but I want to go back again as I am into all the medical curiosity stuff. Not for the faint of heart, as there are some pretty graphic exhibits (babies preserved in jars and the like). Check out the wall of skulls! Creepy!over 6 years ago
I went here with my boyfriend and I’m not sure which was better, seeing all the medical oddities, or seeing him squirm. Personally, I liked the collection of skulls. Definitely worth trying to find a parking spot for!over 6 years ago
This museum is so cool! If you are into viewing bizarre yet slightly grotesque things such as hundreds of things extricated from people’s stomachs or deformed babies pickled and on display in glass jars. This is definately not the place for the squeamish. You are not allowed to take pictures of the exhibits, but you can purchase postcards of various displays in the gift shop.over 6 years ago
