    Welcome To The Mütter Museum In Philadelphia...The Place Where Nightmares Are Born

    On an unassuming street in downtown Philadelphia is a building that looks quite normal from the outside. The sign on it says that the building is part of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. But on the inside? Well, that's a different story.

    Once you walk through the front door, you're confronted with a collection of medical oddities and nightmares, making it an experience unlike any other. Do you know where you are? You're in the world famous Mütter Museum. Shall we take a look at some of its exhibitions?

    The Mütter Museum gets its name from Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter who, in 1858, donated the original collection of medical artifacts.
    Mütter's purpose for donating his personal collection was to create a place for biomedical research and education.

    But over the years, the Mütter Muesum has opened its doors to the public as its collection has grown.

    These conjoined twins are some of the Mütter Museum's creepiest residents.

    This nine-foot-long human colon is one of the most popular attractions at the Mütter Museum.

    It contained at least 40 pounds of feces when it was removed from the body of a circus performer known as the Human Balloon.

    Aside from its actual medical specimens, the Mütter Museum is home to many wax models. They demonstrate the stages of different diseases.


    That looks like it hurts.

    The Mütter Museum even has pieces of Albert Einstein's brain that are divided onto microscope slides.

    Even though it seems like the creepiest place on Earth, the Mütter Museum welcomes over 130,000 visitors every year.
