“HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our museum founder, Dr. Thomas Dent...

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our museum founder, Dr. Thomas Dent Mütter. He was born on this day in 1811 in Richmond, Virginia. He bequeathed his personal collection of medical specimens, models and tools to our home, The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, along with $30,000. He stipulated that a brick building be built to house the collection, that the museum hire a curator, and that we host regular lectures. To this day we have held true to the promises to Dr. Mütter.
Psssst: If you're at the museum today around 11am you might be able to grab some surprise birthday cake AND see a preview of a very special new kind of exhibit…
