I had a ball getting drunk at the American Museum of Natural History. But my most recent drunken outing was much less fun than that. I cannot stress enough that having a series of existential crises while drunk and alone in the Mütter Museum is a horrible idea. Just horrible.
The body of a woman turned to soap, a wall of deformed skulls, and the world's largest colon. If these things have piqued your interest instead of turning your stomach, this creepy museum of the macabre might be the perfect weekend getaway.
What, you didn't think academia would just let the finest mind in science rot do you? When Einstein died in 1955, his grey matter was preserved for posterity. Now, 46 slivers of his thinking cap have been donated to Philadelphia's Mütter Museum.
