I love this place.

Like so many of us old school adoptees, I was marketed to be the standard issue of the 'nursing student mother / medical student father' combo that was so attractively presented to circa 1960's prospective adoptive parents. I used to think of my own imaginary medical student father studying gross abnormalities with great interest. Feeling like a gross abnormality myself, I felt quite comfortable visiting.

There really is no hope for me.

But I have good company! There are 21 reviews over at TripAdvisor, and 11 reviews at CitySearch, the majority favorably rated by fans of the bizarre like yours truly.

That's all for field trip suggestions when visiting Philadelphia next year for the Adoptee Rights Demonstration.

I promise -- nothing too gross for next week's Philly Phriday.

I must be sick.

But it remains on my short list of must-sees next July.
