Mütter Museum

On Wednesday our class took a trip to the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia. At the museum we saw many fascinating, and sometimes disturbing, exhibits. These exhibits range from pathological specimens and wax models to old surgical implements and objects removed from people. The museum also had a variety of medical oddities one of which is the model of Chang and Eng who were conjoined twins born in modern day Thailand in 1811. During their life they married sisters and had a total of 21 children before dying in 1874. After we looked around the museum we had a class about forensic anthropology and bone identification and classification. I really enjoyed our trip to the Mütter Museum and learned a ton.
