The Mutter Museum of Medicine provides a fascinating window into the world of 19th century healthcare. The museum's anatomical exhibits don't preach, sugarcoat or attempt to hide anything. Our sole agenda is to allow the voice of science to "speak" and be heard. While the museum receives visitors of all ages, teens and young adults are particularly devoted to it. The Mutter is one of the nation's best "recruiting centers" for the medical professionals of tomorrow. Among the museum's most important exhibits is "When the President is the Patient." This exhibit documents the long, hidden history of illness in the White House. It also makes clear that there is a well-established tradition of Presidents and their aides attempting to mislead both Congress and the people about the true state of the chief executive's health. On April 8, 2006, the museum will launch a major new exhibition called "The Medical World of Benjamin Franklin." The Mutter Museum of Medicine is open daily from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Admission is $10.00 for adults, with reduced rates for seniors and students. To book a group tour of the museum, please contact Ms. Laura Johnson at (215) 563-3737 Ex. 211. The College/Museum are located at 19 S. 22nd Street between Market and Chestnut in Center City.
