  • I could not believe how many antique medical items were on display here. Very interesting way to spend an hour or two. Not to be missed! 
  • In 1804, Louisiana was the first State to pass a law that dictated that pharmacists who wished to operate in the State had to pass a licensing exam. The Museum is housed in the first pharmacy licensed in the United States. The place is very nice because it keeps the style of old pharmacy all made of wood with its shelves placed where large glass medicine bottles.

  • A good history lesson on the first pharmacist, heroin and cocaine. New Orleans played a pivotal role in the world of pharmacy and medicine. This museum provides with their stories. The museum is full ...  more »

  • One of the best places in New Orleans to spend $5. Do the tour at 1pm on weekdays. You will get a very passionate and lively person that talks you thru the most fascinating pieces in the museum. He will fascinate you and make you very very happy you didn't grow up in the 1850s. Great if you like gross things and vintage things.
  • The absolute coolest place I have ever visited. It was one of the highlights of my trip to New Orleans. It is the closest you can get to being transported back in time- I could have spent all day there! The only minus was the rather standoffish young gentleman manning the place- he acted as if he was doing us a big favour by answering our questions. He did not suit the place at all.
  • Really interesting small museum with a great guided tour offered. There's s lot to see in a small space so I'd recommend getting there at 1:00 for the guided tour. We got there late, but from the 15 minutes we got with the tour guide it was really fun and informative. Cheap admission and a good way to spend an hour or two.
  • Cool place. Went in middle of a tour guide very detailed. Was fun looking at how things were done in the past. 5$ fee. Pokestop nearby
  • Well, only one counter to the right of the cashier is authentic from the remains of the pharmacy. Everything else is from other places, though still authentic. Best part was the upstairs and the banana trees in the garden.
