Mütter Museum Refreshment Saloon

How does food affect our health and morale? Visit with reenactment doctors, soldiers, and confectioners of the American Civil War to see (and taste!) what soldiers and civilians ate and why. Hourly food releases will help inform your palate of authentic Civil War recipes, including treats from Philadelphia’s Franklin Fountain and Shane Confectionery.


This Refreshment Saloon event is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Will take place from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and is included with Museum Admission

The Mütter Museum helps the public appreciate the mysteries and beauty of the human body while understanding the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease.
