Mutter Museum - Review

In 2013, this place turned 150 years old, so you know it’s got some staying power. If you have the slightest morbid or macabre fascination with the human body, it’s dieseases, deformities and strangeness – then this place is your haven – a must do on your Philly travel bucket. When Philadelphia physician donated his 1700 item  collection to the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, the College decided to open up this museum and go on adding to it’s list. So what will you find? Preserved human fetuses, a presidential tumour (not kidding), the liver from a pair of conjoined Siamese twins, slices of Albert Einstein’s brain (worth visiting for this alone!), a bit of a brain of an assassin, disease riddled bodies, two headed babies, a distended ovary and so on. There’s also thousands of diagrams and drawings and flowcharts with lots of interesting information. And while everything is every carefully lit and tastefully displayed – I wouldn’t recommend coming here right after lunch.

  • This is by far the most interesting museum I've ever been to. There are so many amazing preserved specimen that span more than a century of medical science. Whether you're a student or practitioner of medicine, a fan of the macabre, or just plain curious this place is worth setting aside at least 3 or more hours to visit and really take your time exploring. Fair warning: this is NOT someplace to visit if you're squeamish, easily disturbed, or have a weak stomach. This is a museum of medical science, not a haunted house, however many of the specimen could be considered disturbing in nature as there are many physiological anomalies on display that are not often seen or discussed in everyday life.

  • This was definitely a very unique experience. The map makes the museum look small but it's actually really big inside. Spent over 5 hours seeing every human specimen on display. Everything was respectfully presented and in no way offensive. There's also a room with art made of human hair that is just amazing to look at. Highly recommend checking it out. The only 2 gripes i had were out of the museum's control... 1) The air was a bit thick, which gave me a constant headache until I stepped outside. But I guess they have to keep a certain temperature to preserve the specimens. 2) Local parking is almost impossible to find. But found a parking lot that wasn't too bad at $15 for the 5 hour stay. Overall though, a very great place to experience at least once in your life and make mental memories of since pictures aren't allowed.

  • No photos were allowed out of respect for the specimen but it was well worth the trek over from old city. The pathology collection is among the most interesting you’ll see anywhere. Highly recommend. *pro tip: try to avoid Saturday if you can - that seems to be their peak day and it was pretty crowded. Even then, it was still worth it.

  • Such an interesting museum! Not super interactive, but very knowledgeable and not too crowded. They have a nice little garden and art exhibit, too. I have a pass that got me in free, but I still think it’s probably worth the money.

  • I personally loved this museum. Very informative and unique. I do have a couple of suggestions. If you are not good with medical stuff, I would not recommend this museum. This museum is also on the smaller side and can get packed. I suggest going earlier or later in the day. It gets really busy on the weekends. I love curiosity museums. It was interesting to see how medical stuff was viewed back in the day. Just a great place all around!
