It would be all too easy to pass by this historical gem located in the Vieux Carre Historic District of New Orleans French Quarters, as the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is appropriately aged and nondescript from the outside. But peek inside the clouded windows and inside the apothecary of America’s first licensed pharmacist and history buffs will find themselves lured by hundreds upon hundreds of preserved examples of our country’s medicinal past. The museum is like a Harry Potter potion shop come to life, well worth the $5 entry fee.
