I'm currently in school to become a dental assistant. Our class met up in Guthrie for a field trip. It was really interesting and a little mind boggling to see the old medications and instruments used. Really not all that long ago. It makes you really appreciate how far the medical field has come along. Really interesting small museum. It is worth the stop!

Reminder of what a drug store used to be. It's amazing to see some of things that we used to use as "medicine". What will it be like in another 100 years? People will be laughing at the meds we take today I'm sure.

They also have sarsaparilla for the trying. Soda fountain too.

We were in Guthrie for a festival and just wandered into the museum. It is laid out and furnished like an old drugstore with all sorts of interesting medicines and devices. It took us about 30 minutes to see, but you could spend more or less time depending on how thoroughly you want to examine things. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. There's no entrance fee, but there is a container for donations.

Daughter drove us to Guthrie, so we could see this very charming small city. All of us love Museums, so decided to visit this Drugstore Museum. From the outside, we figured, we would be spending 20 minutes there. Well, we were there for about an hour and a half.

All sorts of antique vials, bottles, containers, jars, tins, etc. are crammed on the shelves. We were told that much of that was donated. It was fun to look at it all, and to read the language on many of the labels. However, when a volunteer came over, and began explaining the whys of some of the bottles (like, for instance, all bottles containing poison had to have a certain raised ridge on them, so that, if during the night you needed your medication, and grabbed a bottle off the shelf, you would, immediately, know that it contained poison), we were mesmerized. Such facts, and there were many, cause one to have more interest in the item.

We learned quite a bit about old pharmaceutical containers, and we, only, left because it was closing time. There is a lovely well kept, “Apothecary Garden” next door, where one can rest and relax.

Really enjoyed this free museum and apothecary garden. All of the old medicines were very interesting, but the old wheelchair, typewriter, dental chair and office setup, were not to be missed. The old soda fountain was also fun to see. Worth the stop!

This little museum is packed with interesting pharmaceuticals and old photos, and bottles and anything to do with a drugstore. I don't know which I had more fun looking at: the old bottles, or the photos.
There is no charge, but a $2 donation is requested.
I highly recommend a visit to this museum (and don't miss the Apothecary Garden next door).

While in Guthrie last December, to eat and to take part in their weekend Victorian Christmas activities, this museum was open for free. I didn't expect much but was very pleasantly surprised! It is filled with tons and tons of original patent medicine vials, bottles, boxes, crates ... one neat feature was a wall with old newspaper ads for medicines in Guthrie decades ago ... concoctions for mere pennies! The museum is well laid out and easy to find things of interest to all. A very neat, unusual place. Worth an hour or so of your time when in Guthrie.

This little drugstore had items from the 19th and early 20th century. There were bottles for thyroid, a "battle in a bottle" treatment, laudanum, and sposatory medicine. Also, there were old cans of herbs, teas, petroleum jelly,and many other oddities.
