  • An incredibly detailed exhibit on American pharmacology. Kurt is a fantastic educator and his love for the museum is contagious. Give yourself 90+ minutes for his presentation...we had 4 adults and 5 kids (7-13yo) who soaked it up.
  • We had an excellent experience at the Ouray Alchemist Museum! Curt went out of his way to accommodate a tour for us at the last minute. In addition to the most amazing collection of pharmacy and medical artifacts I've encountered, Curt brings the history to life with an amazing knowledge, perspective, and humor. I would definitely recommend setting aside time to visit the museum while you are in the area. Thanks Curt!
  • This place was an unexpected adventure! I've been coming to Ouray since I was a kid, but never ventured in. We were seeking out some over-the-counter medication, but when we walked in we found not only that but an entire museum! Curt was knowledgeable and entertaining and the collection was amazing. Will definitely stop by again next time we're in town!
  • Wonderful! I was lucky enough to be the only person in the store with Curt. He kindly gave me a tour and provided me with a full-blown history lesson . This is the kind of shop you go into and you really get to know the owner. He is a wealth of knowledge. . . Ask Questions!! Learn!! It's a gem and a beautiful look into American History of medicine. It's is a powerful place. A must see. My very favorite place in Ouray. Thank you, Curt! I'll always stop by and say hello when I'm back in town. I wish you the very best!
  • Curt's collection is so cool. Thank you, Curt!
