Mutter Museum | LIVE Review by Goober Monkey

Whew!  What a day!  Kelly and I have been going since 9 a.m. and right about 1:30 p.m. we met up with Jenni and Steph.  We headed over to Mutter Museum after we got our bags up into our suite (we’re in the continental suite on the top floor of the Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast – so incredibly gorgeous!).

Unfortunately, Mutter Museum’s staff was less than friendly with us.  The young woman behind the front counter was not familiar with our Visit Philly VIP passes which gave us free admission to the museum, and was not wanting to give us access no matter what the pass said.  She was rather snippy with us, and eventually called a manager and made it sound like we were a gigantic inconvenience that we were there.

She eventually heaved a huge annoyed sigh saying that their marketing department never told her what to expect with these passes.  Big thumbs down to the front desk clerk.  Honestly, had one of us gotten her name, I would have truly written in and complained because she was extremely rude.

No one is allowed to take photos of the museum, so unfortunately we do not have any to share with you.
Mutter was definitely interesting to walk around.  It’s not a museum for the faint of heart or weak of stomach.

Jars of abnormalities cover the shelves.  Odd photos of bizarre tumors and growths were everywhere.   One big thing that interested me were the drawers upon drawers filled with strange things that people have swallowed – buttons, pins, gigantic fruit pits, toys, and more.

Unfortunately, the tone of the tour was soured due to the girl at the front desk.  I would possibly return in the future, but I’d rather not have to deal with her again.
