Philadelphia’s Mutter Museum Displaying Samples of Einstein’s Brain

This blog post was updated on October 18, 2018.

The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia is known for a wide collection of oddities. However, its latest can’t-look-away exhibit may take the cake.


The Center City museum is currently displaying samples of deceased German physicist Albert Einstein’s brain.


The museum recently received a donation of 46 slides containing samples of Einstein’s grey matter from an 82-year-old neuropathologist, according to the Washington Post.


While the museum has some samples, the bulk of Einstein’s brain remains at the University Medical Center at Princeton.
