Weird Mütter Museum

Share/Bookmark

The Mütter Museum was founded in 1858, when Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter donated a collection of medical anomalies, anatomical and pathological specimens, and bizarre medical instruments to the museum. Its original purpose was to continue medical education and research in the heart of Philadelphia, located inside the headquarters of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Inside the Museum, you’ll find a wide smattering of abnormal body parts preserved in fluid. You’ll encounter skeletal formations — like that of a 7’6” man — that don’t seem quite possible. Diseased and enlarged organs are tastefully displayed within glass-encased oak frames. For the sake of comparison, illustrations of normal anatomical formations are cast in wax, plaster and papier mâché throughout the museum. Photography is not allowed in the Mütter.
