    The Museum of Mourning Art is less than 30 minutes from Philadelphia and explores the unusual history and artistic culture of grief. The museum features familiar death symbols, such as the skull and cross bones, that are found on books, clocks, engravings, bells, ceramics, tombstones and a variety of other objects related to death. A special exhibit features more than seventy pieces of mourning jewelry, worn as mementos of the deceased. Most notable is a special exhibit dedicated to George Washington and the national grief that gripped America.
