Mutter Medical Museum of the Odd, Strange, and Bizarre

In the spirit of Halloween that is coming up soon, I thought to share with everyone a FASCINATING museum located in Philadelphia, PA. The museum's full name is "Mütter Museum of College of Physicians of Philadelphia" and contains a fascinating collection of the bizarre aspect of medical sciences. Many of the exhibits are real and not for the faint of heart.

Of course, I should mention that they have a number of exhibits related to ENT... including one of all the foreign bodies removed from the ear, nose, airway, etc.

Even as a physician who was bored with "The Bodies" exhibit, I am STILL fascinated by what I see in this museum.

Go check it out!

Here are a few images, but more can be found on Google Images.
