Oct 17th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, This and That

I am into some admittedly weird stuff – murders, hauntings, all things macabre.  But a place I learned about while planning my 2016 trip to Pennsylvania seemed even a bit too morbid for me.  As DK Eyewitness Travel Guide described, The Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia exhibits “curious and unusual items, including preserved specimens and wax anatomical and pathological models.”  While the book’s photograph of The Mütter’s display of 139 real human skulls had me drooling, I feared the site might […]
