Located inside the headquarters of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, the Mutter Museum has a wide range of wondrous and curious medical displays. These include the skeleton of the tallest man in North America and the fused bones of Harry Eastlack, who died of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, an extremely rare disorder in which the soft connective tissue of the body ossifies, painfully freezing the body in an immobile state. These and many other exhibitions are displayed in the some of the same Victorian cabinets that the museum began with in 1858.

Among their extensive collection, though not on display is a set of brain slides curated not because of its defects, but because of its extraordinary brilliance. They look like strands of kelp, or shards of bark. In fact, these slides contain slivers from the brain of the twentieth century's most famous scientist: Albert Einstein.
