There’s so much that I love about the twisted city of Philadelphia, especially our museums. If I had to pick just one museum as my most twisted favorite it is the Mutter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
In 1858, Dr. Thomas Dent Mutter willed his vast collection of medical curiosities to the college of physicians, to carry on his legacy of education long after his death. Over 150 years later the Mutter Museum is one of the coolest, creepiest and most unique museums in the country.
But there would be no Mutter Museum without Dr. Mutter. Step back in time as we explore Dr. Mutter’s life and legacy, a few skulls and wet specimen jars along the way.
