“housing one of New Orleans' best collection of eclectic items”

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an historic building within the Vieux Carre Historic District, the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum showcases its extensive collection and provides interpretive educational programs to present and preserve the rich history of pharmacy and healthcare in Louisiana; past and present.  The Museum also highlights the role of Louis Joseph Dufilho, Jr. whose work symbolizes the beginning of a system of certifying the professional competence of pharmacists, and recognizing the vital significance of that competence for the public health. "Almost every cobbled street in the Big Easy houses some eclectic museum or another, and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is one of the best." - Rand McNally, Best of the Road

Very knowledgable staff when I went. There are lots of things to look at (especially if you are truly interested in this stuff) and for $5, it's worth a look around. I like that there was information on the house as well, which I enjoyed looking at.

If I had any kind of medical background this would have been more enjoyable. As it was, I loved it. Brochures help to explain some of the items and signs explain the others. A person could spend hours enjoying everything on display. A guided tour would have been perfect.

This place isn't huge or anything, and it's certainly not for the faint of heart, but it's truly fascinating. It touches on voodoo, New Orleans history, soda fountains, questionable medical devices, and more, but it all works together to paint this really vivid picture of life back in the 1800's.

If you would want to know more about the medicine, the place is perfect! There are a lot of interactive activities that you can enjoy. The staff are also friendly and knowledgeable of the displays.
