Just a lovely 90 min private tour of an old time Pharmacy/Museum. The store temporarily closes and the owner walks you back in time in an actual old time restored Pharmacy with all the trappings , medications, stories, and history . The owner is very passionate about the museum and it shows. Anyone who loves history should absolutely take the opportunity to visit if nearby Ouray, CO.

We stopped by because of the reviews of others on this site and we are so glad we did. It was the highlight of our trip. Curt was so nice, funny and knowledgeable. You can not beat the price as others have said it was worth way more. We learned so much in a fun and personable way. He has such a neat collection and a wonderful presentation. I would recommend this to everyone. Thanks Curt. Nicole and Keith, Lafayette, Colorado.

We loved the tour of the Alchemist Museum and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in old pharmacist techniques and antiques. The owner/curator is one of the most knowledgable people I've ever spoken with on these practices and he has a very obvious love and passion for the subject. His collection of antiques is impressive, but even more impressive is his knowledge and story about each and every piece! We took the last tour of the day and he was more than happy to stay late and share more information. There were antiques I had never seen or heard of until this museum. Ouray is one of my favorite mountain towns, and this is a museum that we will continue to visit each time we come to Ouray because I'm sure the collection will grow.
