Once you walk through the door it's like time stood still. Lots of examples of prescriptions and different medicines and packaging. It was interesting to read the labels and note the active ingredients... ( alcohol seemed popular). Also neat to see how the pills were made. There is no charge for visiting but there is a donation box.

Fascinating to see how medicine was prescribed not that long ago. A well preserved time capsule. Right on the main street so easy to find.

It is wonderful the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake has had the foresight to preserve so much of its history. The Niagara Apothecary Museum is an important contribution to the historical theme of this beautiful little town. The Apothecary has a number of interesting displays to view, each of which gives you an understanding of what cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and household goods were... More

When shopping or visiting Niagara on the Lake; I always enjoy stopping in here. The shopkeeper is knowledgeable and always fun to talk to and ask questions of. Well worth the visit!

I learned the difference between a pill and a tablet. I enjoyed reading all the old labels on the medicine bottles.

Looks interesting and captures old times. Since I have been visiting mostly in the winter or late fall, I have not seen it open,
