Mutter Museum, Philadelphia

Founded in 1858, Mutter Museum displays an array of medical equipment, biological samples, models, diagrams, and bizarre preserved specimens. The museum itself is a section of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, and includes preserved abnormal human organs, bones, and wax molds, intended to display the mystery and complexity of the human body. While many exhibits are strange and are presented as if in a Victorian-era museum, they also provide a great deal of information on the progression of medical technology. Be aware that this museum may not be suitable for the faint of heart or those easily disturbed.
