This is a small historic building in the heart of Niagara on the Lake.......a small building, but packed with interesting historical items. What a treasure! We enjoyed visiting on a Sunday afternoon in late September.

We thought this place was so neat, almost everything there was from the original apothecary, pictures of the late Queen Mother, equipment, jars, just amazed to see so many original pieces.

If you get a chance to visit inside this site take it. A beautifully restored and preserved site giving a glimpse into the past. Well worth a visit.

So interesting! Fascinating artifacts. The staff were very informative - it looks almost identical to the way it did in the 1800's.

We did a quick tour here and found it so interesting. The authentic bottles and pictures were interesting to see. Doesn't take a lot of time to see this treasure. Recommend making time for it, particularly if you enjoy history
