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.

Talk about one of those places where a kid can be a kid! The Crayola factory has more than a dozen exhibits that are hands-on! Kids don’t just look at the colors and crayons, they create and participate. Exhibits include Crayon Manufacturing, Inside Out (a glass wall that kids can color from BOTH sides and see how the colors mix), Crayola after dark, and the Crayola Meltdown.
While the kids will be amazed at the colors and experience, parents will learn about the history of the crayon as well (and enjoy seeing their children completely immersed in activity)
Best of all – like their brochure says – no cleanup for you!
