Thanks, Sue, you made me google Mütter Museum (because I had never heard of it) and be aptly creeped out just seeing images of the place.

Unfortunately, the first thing on your list may not be possible. I think there are only 2 flights left and all the "official" viewing seats are sold out. Loved your pictures And your list!
