The Mutter Museum of Medical History in Philadelphia (USA) is one of the promising candidates for the position of “The world’s most bizarre and horror museum”.
It is a museum displaying unique artifacts of the most terrible metamorphosis that can occur on the human body.
The institute was established over 200 years ago on the initiative of a local college.
The founder is Mr. Thomas Mutter. He wanted to prove that medicine is both a science and an art.
Visiting the museum, one can see deformed bones, monstrously shaped internal organs, wax models of various pathologies, monstrosities and many only visible artifacts. one of man’s worst nightmares.
The entrance ticket to enter the “medical horror” cathedral, experience the … momentary horror is 14 dollars.
Not all exhibits in the Mutter Museum are real, many pathologies and body parts are made of wax, but the preserved bodies and internal organs of people make everyone shudder. I showed visitors a realistic picture of an aspect of life.
Those are images that no one can calmly look at and visitors have to go through a real psychological shock.
However, from a cognitive and philosophical point of view, it is not useless to see unusual images of people.
It gives us the answer to one of the oldest questions: What are the dangers before humans and how should we view them?
And when that is realized, the monsters also have features of true beauty.
