Pharmacy Museum

Historical Pharmacy Museum

The museum is housed in a Creole townhouse (ca. 1823) once owned by the first licensed pharmacist in the US.  In operation since 1950, the Pharmacy Museum offers a look at a 19th century apothecary shop. The lower level features the artifacts of a working apothecary.  The upper level of the museum features the former residence of pharmacist Louis Joseph Dufilho, Jr. The exhibits on the upper level are subject to change.  Don’t forget to stroll through the peaceful courtyard.  The Pharmacy Museum is one of the most reasonably priced historical attractions in NOLA.  Admission:  Adults = $5, Students/Seniors = $4, Free for children under the age of 6.
