Hi, what are you looking for?


The Mütter Museum
House of Oddities

If you are like me, then you really enjoy the posts we put up featuring corpse photography, pickled organs and oddities, siamese twins and other deformities. Well there is a place for people like you in me in Philadelphia – The Mütter Museum in the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. After physician Thomas Mütter donated his 1,700-item personal collection of bones, plaster casts, medical illustrations and other pathological artifacts to the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, the Mütter Museum was opened in 1863. The museum now contains 20,000 oddities of a medical nature, everything from skulls and skeletons to organs and casts of people like the original Siamese Twins, Chang and Eng from North Carolina, whose bodies were actually autopsied in the Museum. They also house a massive collection of antique skulls, which they are offering to allow you to adopt as a part of their “Save Our Skulls” drive. So if you want your sweetheart to know they are loved, adopt a skull from the Mütter, so when they gaze on its death face they think of you! After the jump watch an early-2000s Discovery Channel documentary on the Mütter, where it opens its doors to cameras on a rare occasion…
