Niagara Apothecary Museum, Niagara-on-the-Lake
(4.4/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Frozen in time since 1869, Niagara Apothecary Museum remains one of the few examples of a late nineteenth century apothecary. Authentically maintained in working condition, the establishment opened in 1820 and operated until 1964, declared a national historic site of Canada four years later. Inhabiting a single storey unit, it's Georgian facade, black walnut and butternut fixtures, and crystal gasoliers have all been painstakingly restored to accurately portray the era. Fast forward to today and a visit to the apothecary provides a step back in time, stocked from floor to ceiling with bottles of miracle cures, surrounding an ornately carved dispensary from where the pharmacist concocted his medicines.

  • This place is so neat. It was like entering a pharmacy mixed with a chemistry lab. You'll just have to go in and see what I'm taking about. 
  • If you are a pharmacist, this place has very interesting exhibits and displays. It is historical place worth spending at least an hour.

  • Interesting place. Wish it had better hours.
  • Really interesting little spot we stumbled upon. It's free to take a look although they appreciate donations. Lots of historical medical items to see. Totally recommend if you're in the area.
