Museum: Mutter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia
America’s finest museum of medical history, the Mütter displays its beautifully preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models, and medical instruments in a 19th century “cabinet museum” setting. The goal of the Museum is to help the public understand the mysteries and beauty of the human body while appreciating the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease. The Collection began as a donation from Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter, who was determined to improve and reform medical education.
