Discover The Mutter Museum After Dark
Date:9/5/2007

One of Philadelphia's Most Popular Museums Will Keep Its Doors Open Late

Friday Nights This Fall

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking for an unusual, eye-opening way to spend a Friday evening? Try the Mutter Museum, home to one of the most intriguing medical collections on public display in the world, including wax models, fluid-preserved anatomical and pathological specimens, and skeletal and dried specimens. The Mutter Museum will extend its normal operating hours and remain open until 9 p.m. on Friday nights beginning Sept. 14.

"In response to the Mutter's increasing popularity we are expanding our hours on Fridays," said Andrea Kenyon, Museum Director. "By staying open late, we are offering visitors a unique way to start their weekend."

To further add to the enjoyment of a Friday night visit, the Mutter is hosting a series of events, starting with a Sept. 21 mixer for students from colleges and universities in the region. On Oct. 26, the Mutter screens the 1985 cult film "The Doctor and the Devils," and on Nov. 2, Dana Kollmann, author of "Never Suck a Dead Man's Hand: Curious Tales of a CSI," will enthrall visitors with stories from the morgue and of her life as an actual Crime Scene Investigator.

Friday evening visitors also will have access to the Mutter's new Cell Phone Audio Guide; a free, interactive tour that offers more in-depth information about some of the museum's popular and unique pieces. Visitors will learn about such one-of-a-kind treasures as the preserved body of "The Soap Lady" and the tallest skeleton on display in North America.

The Mutter Museum at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia was originally founded to educate future doctors about anatomy and human medical anomalies. Today, it serves as a valuable resource for educating and enlightening the public about our medical past and telling important stories about what it means to be human. The Mutter Museum embodie
