This year, the Mutter Museum is taking Halloween to a whole new disturbingly informative level with several chilling events.

Dana Kollmann, author of "Never Suck a Dead Man's Hand: Curious

funny, experiences as a crime scene investigator for the Baltimore

notions of what it really means to be a CSI. Come and find out how her

book got that interesting title! A book signing will follow the

lecture. This program is free with museum admission.

The Mutter Museum, part of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, is not for the faint of heart. The museum's collections include dried severed hands, an ovarian cyst larger than a soccer ball and a wide array of abnormal specimens. The museum is the perfect place to spend Halloween. You have been forewarned!

The museum's collections give visitors the opportunity to see some rather grizzly saws, bleeding bowls and gynecological instruments of the 18th and 19th century.

The museum, located on 22nd Street between Market and Chestnut streets, is open to the public Monday through Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
