Niagara Apothecary Museum, Niagara-on-the-Lake

4.4
#2 of 10 in Museums in Niagara-on-the-Lake
Specialty Museum Museum
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.
