About the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia

America’s finest museum of medical history, the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia 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.
