They seem to have omitted the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia. That one is filled with preserved medical oddities, some of which are in the "must be seen to be believed" category. I had numerous, "OMG, that poor person!" moments as I saw preserved skeletons, intestines, and other proof of people's unusual medical woes on display.

I have not visited the Eastern State Penitentiary, which is also in Philadelphia, but it's a defunct prison with a notorious history. I'm not sure how museum-like its interior is, but for anyone who's going on a haunted tour of Philadelphia, it's a must-see.

And if you're interested in ghosthunting on a Philadelphia site whose most notorious feature has long since been closed and at least partially demolished, look up Byberry State Hospital. It closed in the 1980s, IIRC, and some if not all of its buildings have been torn down. But it was a hellhole when it was in operation, so I have zero doubt that ghost hunters will be motivated to pay the location a visit. Some energies are indelible or darn near close to it. The reason why I say "look up" info about it is that it'll be worth seeking out the most current info possible, at or near the time you're planning a trip. I think there's an office campus on the site now where the hospital grounds once stood.

But those last two ideas are not really oddity museums -- they're more like paranormal landmarks. The Mutter Museum definitely is a sort of oddity museum.

A very cool share, and I agree about the Mutter Museum, that is certainly one filled with medical oddities!

This link has been taken down :(

It's ashame that for as long as I have lived in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas I never did quite make it to the penitentiary. Kind of regretting that now, as I am far far away lol.
