    You do not need to pay the admission to enter the gift shop, so if you're looking for a unique souvenir without paying the steep fee, it's possible.

    My dad worked here. It's a very singular museum, easily worth at least one trip. Evocative, as well as "disturbingly informative."

    One of the best museums I've been to dealing with anatomy. Worth a stop because it's weirdly informative as they say.
