Wawa Welcome America


Tuesday June 28


10:00 AM  –  1:30 PM


Welcome to the Mütter Museum for Wawa Welcome America 2022!


We’re so pleased to be participating in Wawa Welcome America for the third year in a safe, socially distanced, capacity! Join us on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 for Pay-What-You-Wish Day at the Mütter Museum for Wawa Welcome America! America’s finest museum of medical history, the Mütter, displays collections of anatomical specimens, models and medical instruments in a nineteenth-century setting. This includes slides of Einstein’s Brain, the 139 skulls from Hyrtl’s collection, and a rotation of art exhibits that accompany the themes and aims of the Museum’s collections. 


Visitors can explore special exhibits such as Spit Spreads Death and Unseen, attend pop-up exhibits and gallery talks from our Library and Museum staff, color our collection in the historic ambiance and stately architecture of Ashhurst and Mitchell Halls, and relax in our beautiful Benjamin Rush Medicinal Plant Garden. 


To guarantee your entry, reserve your ticket here and select an arrival timeslot. For this day only, we have two entry timeslots, 10: 00 AM - 1:30 PM or 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM. You are welcome to enter anytime within your time slot.

A limited amount of tickets will be available for walk-ups. We strongly suggest reserving your ticket ahead of time as we expect to sell out of tickets that day.
