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? [more inside]

Hare's ears. How do they work?

I was watching a video with brown hares in it and noticed the great mobility they seem to have with their ears. What's the anatomy there that allows for that? I searched, but can't seem to find any anatomical drawings of their ears. Does anyone know where I can find one?

distorted human body based on nerves?

I remember once seeing a diagram of the human body where all of the parts are sized based on the amount of nerves in them (it was distorted, like maps that enlarge or shrink areas so that they're representational of population size rather than area). The lips and hands were both really big. My google-fu is failing me-- does anyone know where I could find it?
