Save Our SkullsBe among the first to choose one of the 139 Hyrtl Skulls to "adopt." Your contribution will help offset costs associated with the cleaning, repair, and remounting of your chosen skull. Additionally, your subscription will be acknowledged as part of the skull mount in the permanent Hyrtl Skull Exhibit in the Mütter Museum. Find out how you can get involved.
A small portion of the Mütter Museum will be closed for construction until the end of May to prepare the space for the upcoming exhibition, Broken Bodies, Suffering Spirits: Injury, Death, and Healing in Civil War Philadelphia, opening in Fall of 2013. This construction will not affect the main gallery or any of the Museum's primary exhibits.
