The Mütter Museum, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a medical museum which houses medical oddities, wax models, antique equipment, and memorabilia of famous scientists and physicians.

The Museum's collections includes over 20,000 objects. Among the strangest displays are a preserved nine-foot long colon full of fecal matter, a growth taken from Lincoln's assassin, and a woman whose remains turned to soap.

Further displays include a collection of 2,000 objects extracted from people's throats, a plaster cast of the torso of world-famous Siamese twins, and the tallest skeleton on display in North America.
