    Great place to go learn and see things you won't experience anywhere else, a place where the morbid obsessed are welcome

    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."

    I give this place a "like" even though I wanted to throw up, and someone fainted which scared us shitless. That probably intrigues you...You'll like it here.

    This isn't "my thing," but lots of cool stuff. Do NOT see it before a meal, though.

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

    My thoughts on this place are wiped clean when I walked through the 'gift shop' and saw they were selling two-headed cookie cutters. POOR FORM.
