The Warren Anatomical Museum is named after Dr. John Collins Warren, who provided the core collection in 1847. It included the anatomical preservations that he used to teach and study anatomy. The museum’s current collection includes an ether inhaler, the skull of Phineas Gage, whose head injuries and survival were famous, numerous skeletons and preserved bits of people, both normal and deformed.
