The Mutter Museum

Featured on the Discovery Channel,this Museum was started through donations by  Dr. Thomas Mutter. His intent was to improve medical education. Since 1858 the college has kept its’ promise to Dr. Mutter, but some of the displays, though all are real, border on the macabe.

The donations left by Dr. Mutter stipulated that the college continue to expand the collection,which they did, build a brick building to house and maintain it, and provide lectures on the contents.

All of the displays contain natural phenomenon, some which grew unnaturally. The Mutter Museum of The College of Physicians is also known as the museum of Medical oddities. A fascinating and unforgettable museum for most ages.
