The Mütter Museum welcomes visitors of all abilities to experience the history of The College of Physicians as one of Philadelphia’s founding centers for medicine through our collections of anatomical and pathological specimens, medical instruments, and models.  

Wheelchair Access

The Museum is wheelchair accessible at the east entrance of our building, on Van Pelt Street (which runs directly behind the Museum, parallel to 21st and 22nd Streets). At the right of the glass door marked “College of Physicians of Philadelphia," you will see an intercom speaker and talk button. Press the button, and when someone responds, say that you are visiting the Museum and need access. Someone will come to assist you. 


Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) are always provided complimentary admission when accompanying a paying visitor to the museum.


Once in the museum, the lower level galleries are also accessible by elevator. See a security officer or Visitor Service member for assistance.

Manual wheelchairs are also available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis at the admissions desk.


Restrooms

Accessible restrooms are located on the first floor behind the admissions desk. Single/Family/All Gender restrooms are also available on the second floor. See a security officer of Visitor Service member for assistance.
