Müt­ter Mu­seum

Where Philadelphia - - EDITOR’S ITINERARY -

The jewel of Amer­i­can med­i­cal his­tory, this mag­nif­i­cently macabre mu­seum of­fers pa­trons an in­side look at the hu­man body. Yes, skulls and bones line the walls and fill the glass cases. Gross, right? Nah. Don’t be dis­con­certed by this in­ti­macy with hu­man anatomy. The Müt­ter makes for a fas­ci­nat­ing di­ver­sion, and 90 min­utes here will fly by. Ein­stein’s brain, the tallest skele­ton in North Amer­ica and the Ben­jamin Rush Med­i­cal Plant Gar­den are just a few of the in­cred­i­ble ex­hibits that help tell the sto­ried tale of our patho­log­i­cal his­tory. Ev­ery item sheds light on the mys­ter­ies of the body and of­fers in­sight into the di­ag­noses of and treat­ments for dis­ease. 19 S. 22nd St., 215.560.8564 Get go­ing!
