Mutter Museum

Next time I am in Philadelphia I want to go to the Mutter Museum. I am watching "World's Creepiest Destinations" on the Travel Channel and this is one of the places featured. It was developed as a teaching tool for those in their school, but is now also a museum.

They also talked about Gettysburg, which we plan to be in next August for Andy's cousin Shannon's wedding (which will be in Gettysburg).

This is their list of Top 10 Creepiest Places:

10. Bermuda Triangle (in the Atlantic Ocean)
9. Haunted Hollywood (Hollywood, CA)
8. Tower of London (London, England)
7. Mütter Museum of Medical History (Philadelphia, PA)
6. Gettysburg (Gettysburg, PA)
5. New Orleans (New Orleans, LA)
4. Salem (Salem, MA)
3. Roswell (Roswell, NM)
2. Winchester Mystery House (San Jose, CA)
1. Lizzie Borden Bed-and-Breakfast (Fall River, MA)

I live near Hollywood and have never heard of Haunted Hollywood. I will have to check it out sometime. I've been to #4. I gotta say, it's not really that scary. It's my favorite bit of American history though, so I loved it there. In fact, I would move to Salem. If I could afford a house there. And find a job.

Oh, oh! I've done #6 too. It was okay. We went ghost hunting in the forest. I wasn't scared at all, but other people were weird about it and said they smelled someone cooking bacon. Nobody was.

You're going to hate me for putting three different posts. But I keep looking back at the list and finding other things I've done. #8. By far the most fun/thrilling of the ones I've done/been to. I have also driven through Fall River, MA, but never say the B&B.

I'm going to make it my personal goal to do all 10 of these things.

Well, after you go to all of them you will have to give me your ranking of each of them.
