The Mütter Museum Meet Up

A while ago, I made a post about a meet up for East Coast Goths at the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After an off-hand comment I made on my Tumblr blog about wanting to go to the museum with other Goths, the idea spread quickly and a meet up was actually proposed. However, due to conflicting dates, no real plans were made. Until now, that is!

Yes, I'm pleased to announce that the Mütter Museum meet up will continue as planned. The current date is June 1st, this year. Any and all Goths and Goth-friendly folks are invited, but you should RSVP to the Facebook Group (Link here!) so we have an accurate head count.

Now, what is the Mütter Museum? Essentially, it is a collection procured by the College of Physicians of Philadelphia to exemplify the human body. Some of the exhibits are strange, some are just plain gross, and others make my spine shiver. So, it's not for the faint hearted, but appropriate for a Goth meet up! Notable exhibits include the soap lady, vintage medical tools, the famous wall of human skulls, and, currently, Albert Einstein's brain. If you're interested in learning more, you can find their website here with a whole host of information.

So, will any of you be showing your lovely faces (And meeting me!) come this June?

  3. I wish I could go! :( I live in NY though, it's a bit of a hike. Someday. If you ever plan another meetup over the summer and I can plan for it I'll try to go. I would love to visit the museum too, it sounds super disturbing...but I think it would be an amazing experience.

  4. Augh! I really wish I could go.... my boyfriend and I are living in the deep-south at the moment. We were planning a trip to Philadelphia in August and the Mutter Museum is on the list but we may not even be able to go then, let alone a few months early!:-/ I do wish you all a great time and hope to see many, many pictures!
