Broken Bodies Suffering Spirits: Injury, Death, and Healing in Civil War Philadelphia
From 9/1/2013 – 8/31/2018 Philadelphia & the Countryside Exhibition

What was it like to fight, to become sick or injured, to take care of the wounded? Why did people—especially women—volunteer to work day and night to relieve the suffering of soldiers? What was it like to miss home or die alone? The Mütter Museum explores these questions via artifacts, anatomical specimens, and illustrations from the Museum’s and other collections. You can even step inside our interactive experience that lets you see what it would be like to have an arm amputated.

Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
