Mütter Museum, Philadelphia
At first glance, a museum that explores death, disease, and human suffering might not seem conducive to the purchase of charming souvenirs. But the store at the museum at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia manages to charm visitors with the kooky (a $6.50 conjoined-twin cookie cutter that Anthony Bourdain reportedly fell in love with), the artistic (a specially commissioned paper doll of Dr. Mütter himself), and the scholarly (Armand Marie Leroi’s captivating book, Mutants: On Genetic Variety and the Human Body).
