NOLA: The Pharmacy Museum


The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is a must-see for anyone that appreciates oddities, vintage lettering & design, or bizarre medical history. This shop, established in 1823, was owned and operated by America's first licensed pharmacist - Louis D. Dufilho Jr.

For a $5 entrance fee, you are welcome to explore the two floors at your own pace. There is a guided tour at 1pm each day, but unfortunately we missed it (we heard rave reviews from others, however!). We were in New Orleans to attend a wedding at this location, but we set aside extra time during the day to explore it during it's operating hours. 

The museum features apothecary bottles of bizarre tinctures and cures, voodoo potions, blood letting devices, journals, surgical tools, antique spectacles, cosmetics, dental instruments, and more. The first floor features an old soda fountain, and the second contains a recreation of a physicians study and a sick room. There's even a beautiful, tranquil courtyard behind the museum. 

















Location & Hours: 
514 Chartres Street
New Orleans, LA 70130
Open Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am-4 pm
