Anna Dhody, Museum Director of The Mutter Museum of the College of Physicians described the ‘Disturbingly Informed’ goal of the institution. 

The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, founded in 1787, is one of the oldest professional medical organizations in the country. Twenty-four physicians of 18th-century Philadelphia gathered “to advance the science of medicine and to thereby lessen human misery.” Today, nearly 1,500 Fellows (elected members) continue to convene at the College and work toward better serving the public.

Throughout its 227-year history, the museum has provided a place for both medical professionals and the general public to learn about medicine as both a science and as an art, an entertaining lesson!  America’s finest museum of medical history, the Mütter Museum displays its beautifully preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models, and medical instruments in a nineteenth-century “cabinet museum” setting to help visitors understand the mysteries and beauty of the human body and appreciate the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease.  For museum hours, exhibition information and online programs, go to muttermuseum.org .
