These macabre churches, catacombs, museums, and crime scenes will give even the bravest visitors the shivers.

Mütter Museum, Philadelphia

12 of 25

Run by the centuries-old College of Physicians of Philadelphia, this museum manages to be scientific, shocking and creepy as it chronicles the abnormalities and diseases that ravage human flesh. Exhibits include a gangrenous hand, syphilis-riddled bones, diseased livers and a gargantuan 40-pound colon. Skeletons of giants, dwarfs and Siamese twins, plus sliced sections of a human head, complete the visual assault.

Truly Creepy: The Soap Lady's 19th-century remains that turned into a soap-like substance called adipocere, also known as “grave wax.” —Donna Heiderstadt
