Dr. Mütter’s Merry Emporium at the Mütter Museum is a holiday season artisan market with a Mütter-edge. Thirty+ vendors from near and far will showcase and sell their work — from taxidermy to “oddly fantastic public domain books” to dreamlike botanical illustrations to graveyard jewelry, and beyond.

The event takes place Sunday, December 11 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Shoppers will find ceramics, jewelry, art, clothing, and much more in a festive atmosphere in the historic building’s beautiful Mitchell and Ashhurst Halls. Full vendor list here.

Admission is included with Museum tickets on December 11 (reservations recommended) or guests can pay $5 to attend only the Emporium. Learn more.

About the Mütter Museum and The College of Physicians of Philadelphia
The College of Physicians of Philadelphia was founded in 1787 by a group of physicians including Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of our nation’s Declaration of Independence. The College is a not-for-profit educational and cultural institution, with the mission of advancing the cause of health while upholding the ideals and heritage of medicine.

The College is home to the Mütter Museum, America’s finest museum of medical history, which displays collections of anatomical specimens, models and medical instruments in a nineteenth-century setting. This includes slides of Einstein’s Brain, the 139 skulls from Hyrtl’s collection, and a biannual rotation of art exhibits that accompany the themes and aims of the Museum’s collections.
