How’s this for a romantic story: he saw her from across the display room. Her eyes glimmered brown like the brine preserving the abnormal tumor display. Although he had just seen her, he couldn’t help thinking how their children might look as he walked past the impossibly small premature baby in a jar. And he thought, as he saw the massively oversized heart in the corner, could this be love?
Meet Market Adventures wants to make this tongue-in-cheek romance into reality this weekend as they present the Singles Mutter Museum Tour. Come meet other medical history enthusiasts for a guided tour of the Mutter Museum.
Started as a museum to educate future doctors about the oddities of the human anatomy, The Mutter Museum remains a popular tourist attraction for people interested in marveling at aberrations in the natural human form. Or, to put it another way, a freak show.
With actual medical specimens of the human heart, lungs and tumors that have been removed from patients over the last 100 years, the Mutter Museum seems an odd choice for a singles mixer. But Meet Market Adventures know what they are doing. Organizing hundreds of singles events a year, their belief has always been that shared experiences bring people together. So this memorable event is sure to draw you close to that special someone. Or at least it will get you close to some really interesting removed spinal polyps.
So if you consider yourself a bit of an oddity and would like to be in good company, come out to the Mutter and see who you might get matched up with.
