Welcome back to the Mütter!

We are so excited to welcome you back to the Museum and wanted to inform you about some changes we’ve made to ensure a safe, disturbingly informative visit. For full details about new policies and cleaning protocols click here. Here are some things to note before your visit: 

All tickets must now be purchased online and in advance. You can purchase your tickets here!   All staff and visitors over the age of 2 years-old are required to wear a mask or face covering over their nose and mouth.   We ask that you practice safe distancing and keep six feet between yourself and other people.   Please utilize the hand sanitizer or bathroom sinks available throughout the building.    We will now be limiting the number of visitors permitted in the building at one time to 50 people each hour.   No photography or filming allowed in the Museum.

What's the best way to get tickets? 

For the time being, we will only be offering tickets online. You can purchase your tickets by clicking the button above! We have reduced visitor capacity to 50 guests each hour from 10am-5pm (with 4pm being the last time slot available until our 5pm closure). In order to limit overcrowding at the entrance, re-entry will not be allowed. 

What if I'm a Member?  

All members MUST reserve their tickets in advance online, too. You can go here for more information.

Where are restrooms for guests?

The 2nd floor restrooms will be available for general public while the 1st floor bathrooms will now be used for accessibility purposes only. 

Are there restrictions on what guests can bring to the Museum? 

Please travel light as backpacks, large bags, large umbrellas, and strollers are not permitted in our galleries. 

I bought a ticket but now do not feel well or cannot attend. What do I do?

Please contact a member of the Operations team at 215-399-2262 or 215-399-2263 to reschedule your visit. 

Has the Mütter resumed on-site events? 

Large events such as Beer Gardens, lectures, and concerts have been paused until further notice, but we have a number of activities available online, including virtual tours, Mütter@Home, and prerecorded events. 

Can I host private events at The College of Physicians?

The College’s in-house caterer, Catering By Design has resumed site rentals. You can find more information here or by contacting Elizabeth Savitz, (Venue Sales Director) at   

Is it safe to visit the Mütter Museum?  

Over the past few months, we have been working to create new operating procedures to keep our visitors and staff safe. We established these procedures through discussions with key staff and medical professionals in partnership with consultant firm, ECRI, and following recommendations from federal, state, and city health officials. We have made these changes to our operations to prioritize the health and safety of our visitors and staff (see full details here). 

In addition to reducing the number of guests and requiring tickets to be purchased in advance, Museum staff will be monitoring guest traffic to promote social distancing and limit capacity in each gallery. Increased cleaning protocols have been implemented and hand sanitizer is now available throughout the building.  

However, there remains a risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any indoor public space.  

If you are sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms, we ask that you stay home and we will accommodate you another day. If you need information on conducting a self-COVID 19 assessment, please visit the Mayo Clinic’s online tool. If you do visit and show signs of illness (sneezing, coughing), you and any accompanying guests will be asked to visit another day.  


Please consider donating to support the Mütter during this time. Your donation will directly support our staff as we re-open the Museum after four months of closure due to COVID-19. With your support, we will re-emerge stronger than ever.
