Being a pharmacist, I may be a bit biased but I thought this was a really cool museum. It looks like they locked the door in 1880 and never returned. It was cool to see all the different things they used back in early days of pharmacy; old bottles, pill makers, etc. There's even a bin that once held cannabis. Who knew?! If you think meds today have safety concerns, there were some pretty hairy things concocted back in those days!
Of note, there's a letter from Mrs. George Washington (I believe) asking for a bottle of their best castor oil and the bill. I think it was ten or twenty bucks for two of us but worth the historical trip and to contribute to the cause.
