PHILADELPHIA (KYW 1060) – How can you make what is arguably Philadelphia’s creepiest museum even creepier? See it at night by flashlight.
KYW’s John Ostapkovich reports the Mutter Museum at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia is world renowned for its collection of skulls and body parts preserved in jars, both normal an anatomically unusual.
It’s been known to give people the creeps in broad daylight, so what’s on the schedule for Friday October 15th, two tours in the dark. Museum spokesman J. Nathan Bazzel says some of the exhibits take on an even more disturbing look in low light, and these brave folks will get even more:
“The guests will be taken behind the scenes into the back hallways of the museum and our national historic landmark building to see things that very few people get to see, including the bone room and some other special rooms.”
If you’re keen to scream, you have to be a Friend of the Mutter member and sign up for this special event.
