sunday i had the pleasure of accompanying my youngest daughter to the mutter museum at the college of physicians of philadelphia. it's a museum dedicated to medical oddities, actual specimens as well as reproductions. they also have a large display of medical instruments used throughout history and many other interesting things.

there is information and a lot of images on their website, but only take a look if you have a strong stomach, are a medical doctor or enjoy experiencing medical oddities at their finest. it was definitely "disturbingly informative". we may have to go back for the next exhibit, a collection of shrunken heads from south america.
