  • I have learned to listen, when I've felt like something or someone otherworldly was speaking to me.....I'm beyond glad that I did! As an amateur herbalist/alchemist historian, I was drawn to Curt Hagg...  more »
  • If you are anywhere NEAR Ouray CO, you MUST take this tour. The owner-guide has so much information on how medicine started. The artifacts are museum quality. I look forward to returning. Mary  more »

  • Thanksgiving of 2016 spent our time in Ouray. While there, we went to the Ouray Alchemist Museum of which we were fortunate enough to receive a private 3 hour presentation from Curt. Both Ken and I enjoyed Curt's presentation very much as it was highly interesting, colorful, and there were so many cool artifacts to look at and have him provide us details behind. Curt was well-versed, a great story-teller and so knowledgable. Would highly recommend this to anyone heading to Ouray. Thanks for a great presentation and tour of your place but mostly for how generous you were with your time away from Nancy to educate us! - Jeanine and Ken from Highlands Ranch CO
  • This was a great little place we stopped at while on vacation. The gentleman has a huge amount of knowledge and a little museum in the back room. It was great to hear and see all the history.
  • My Wife took me here for the first time this year! Apparently she goes here every time she visits Ouray. The owner is AMAZING, and pours his heart and soul out with so much knowledge about the history of medicine the world over. His collection is breath taking..... we absolutely LOVE visiting with Curtis. We will definitely go again!
  • The owner is an amazing person! Call ahead tours are 10am and 1pm. Totally worth the $10 per person. They run about about 1 1/2 hrs long of pure entertainment and information. Would do it all again. Worth driving the distance!
  • My girlfriend and I showed up on New Years Eve, and we really had our heart set on seeing this place. Unfortunately they were closed. The Owners were inside and were nice enough to offer us a private tour. Such a neat establishment so much amazing history. This is truly one of the coolest experiences in Ouray. No doubt you will walk away with a new appreciation for medicine. From its beginnings in Mesopotamia, to the snake oils of the wild west.
