The Mütter Museum has a unique collection of specimens and objects that reflect the human history of anatomy and medicine. You’ll learn about the mysteries and beauty of the human body and appreciate the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease. Inside the creepy yet clinical Mütter Museum, skeletons of all shapes and sizes reside. While its contents may resemble a mad scientist’s funhouse, the museum’s roots actually pay tribute to one of the most humane, respected, and talented surgeons in history.
Following the museum tour, we will visit the museum garden named in honor of Dr. Benjamin Rush. The garden contains more than sixty different kinds of herbs that have historical and sometimes contemporary medicinal value.
Registration, payments and cancellations* must be made by June 24, 2019. *No refunds will be given after this date.
