  • I didn't know what to expect from a pharmacy museum and it was a pleasant surprise. I learned much about the history of medicine and New Orleans. Don't miss the courtyard.  more »

  • As a pharmacist I was super nerding out going into this museum. I thought it was a lot of fun but something was missing. It felt more like a early 1900s health museum more than geared towards just pharmacy. Very interesting to see drugs that were used back in the day are still in use today. Definitely recommend going to this place at least once but probably won't go back
  • It was not what I expected but I was very pleased with the museum. It was very informative and had some really interesting items not just from pharmaceutical past but medical history as well. I always enjoy a good review of how rough things were back in the day. There is a courtyard that must be visited, you need to go sit in the fountain area and gaze upon the building. It is a good example of old style French Quarter architecture.
  • This was an awesome experience. The presenter was very informative and entertaining. It was really interesting to learn about the crazy pharmaceutical practices way back in the day.
  • You take the tour by yourself, they give you a brochure with the information you need about the place. But it's a must go to pharmacists! I had a lot of fun looking at the century- old medicines, instruments, etc.
  • Cool way to spend an hour. Stairs, so no wheelchairs. Lots of things to read of you aren't rushed by other museum goers. Really interesting. $5.
