Weird NYC & DC! RIYL Mütter Museum, Body Worlds, anatomical collections?

My favorite place in the entire world is Philadelphia's exquisite and incomparable Mütter Museum
, I've seen Body Worlds
more than a dozen times... and you should probably refrain from clicking either of those links if you are squeamish
I will soon be spending a week in NYC followed by a week in Washington, DC. Can you help me make a list of similar museums, exhibits, and collections to visit while I'm there?

Specific travel dates, in case there are temporary or traveling exhibits in town: NYC 4/21 to 4/28, DC 5/3 to 5/10.
+ Public transit accessibility is a must, but I am willing to travel extensively as long as I can get within 1-2 miles of the place on a bus or train.
+ The National Museum of Health and Medicine is a no-go, as access to their anatomical collection
is available exclusively to researchers, and even then only by appointment. *dejected sniffle*
