Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

This is invariably the museum that out-of-town guests beg to be taken to when visiting Philadelphia. Agree, if you dare. It’s jam-packed with stomach churning medical oddities, anatomical anomalies and pathological specimens that never fail to generate a steady stream of gawkers. If you’re not a squeamish type, then make sure to get a good look at the Soap Lady, slices of Albert Einstein’s brain, foreign objects removed from bodies, the “corset” skeleton and wet specimens from every part of the human body. Or check out the interactive exhibit that let’s you experience what it’s like to have your arm amputated. As the museum touts, get “disturbingly informed.”
