If you’ve already heard of the Hunterian Museum, you're probably into some weird shit. If you haven’t and are faint of heart, beware. This eclectic collection of all things pickled (onions excluded) is one of the oldest anatomical and zoological collections in the country. It's a constantly expanding compilation of artefacts that was initially curated by the surgeon John Hunter. Luckily for lunch–break explorers, the museum is both small and free. And if time is really tight, don’t miss these most remarkable specimens.
