Overview

Sometime before his death in 1859, Philadelphia physician Thomas Mütter donated $30,000 and his 1,700-item personal museum of bones, plaster casts, medical illustrations and other pathological artifacts to the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, which was used to create the first incarnation of the museum in 1863.

The College has continued to add to the collection ever since, now boasting more than 20,000 items of interest in the medical field.
