As a doctor I found this museum to be fascinating. Although it was small it was packed with a lot of interesting collections. My 12yo daughter also found it very entertaining although I would caution about bringing young children here. Definitely worth the trip just...More

This exhibit has obviously been in place a long time. Labeling is small print and difficult to read which limits my enjoyment. They could learn from the Barnes Foundation about better way to communicate info about a specific exhihibit Limited hours so plan accordingly.

This was the reason we chose to come to Philly for sightseeing. This small museum is a collection of medical oddities from a 19th century collection. The wall of skulls was impressive and we spent a lot of time walking through and looking at them....More

A beautiful building with some very unusual exhibits. It is really geared for medics or biologists but is fascinating in an odd way.

This small yet well-curated museum is stock-full of medical oddities, ranging from gangrenous feet to oversized tumors, misshaped bones, and a fascinating history of the medical field dating back to the 19th century. It's not for the faint-hearted, and there's a faintly unethical air surrounding...More

I don’t believe so. We visited in peak vacation season over the Fourth of July holiday and were able to get in without a problem by just walking in. I don’t know if they have a daily limit or not.
