Building Renovations January - February 2017

There will be no elevator access to the Mütter Museum for all of January and February 2017. 

The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, home of The Mütter Museum and Historical Medical Library, will be installing a new elevator from January 1st, 2017. Our new elevator will drastically improve access to our collections and events and visitors will be able to enjoy regular access as of early March, 2017.

From January 1st - end of February, anyone unable to navigate stairs will not be able to get into our building. There will not be a ramp.

Additionally, due to installation of an exciting new exhibit, access to the gallery currently hosting our Vesalius exhibit will be restricted from mid-January until early March, 2017. More details about this new exhibit will be released shortly.

We apologize sincerely for any and all inconvenience that this will inevitably cause, however this vital and important maintenance to our historic building will greatly enhance our visitor experience going forward. 

Thank you so much for your patience.
