Mütter Museum Trip

Right before PRIED’s winter break we went to Philadelphia and visited the Mütter Museum.  When we got there we explored the exhibits.  After that we did a class where we learned bone identification. In the bone identification we earned how to find age, race, gender, and height from skulls and bones.  We found them by looking at the eye shape, the jaw line, and how wide the pelvis is.  To find the height of a person you need to plug measurements into an equation.  When we were finished we visited the Alice and Wonderland exhibit.  My favorite part of the museum was the fetuses in the jars at different ages.
