Social Event -

Following the Plenary Session, members and guests of ICDD are invited to join us for a visit to America’s finest museum of medical history – The Mütter Museum. The Mütter Museum is housed by The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, which is the oldest professional medical organization in the country. The Mütter displays preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models and medical instruments in a 19th century “cabinet museum” setting. The museum strives to give the public an understanding and appreciation for the mysteries and beauty of the human body, history of diagnosis, and treatment of disease.

Mutter*

The museum first began as a collection, donated by Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter. Mütter attended the University of Pennsylvania’s medical school at a time when students were unable to work with patients or assist with procedures. Frustrated with the American teaching method, Mütter went to Paris to receive hands-on training. When he returned to the U.S., Mütter assembled his collection, and donated it and a $30,000 endowment to The College of Physicians of Philadelphia with only a few stipulations. The College had to maintain and expand the collection, fund annual lectures, and erect a building to house the collection. To this day, the museum holds true to its promise to Dr. Mütter, and as a result, the museum enjoys international popularity, was featured in a Documentary on the Discovery Channel, and is the subject of two best-selling books.

Besides touring the museum, our guests are invited to attend a Mütter Lesson: Bone Detectives! Enjoy a 45 minute lesson and discover what happens when a skeleton is found, and learn about the role of forensic anthropology in criminal investigation.
