"N.O. Pharmacy Museum" Pharmacy Museum Tip by Virtuous_Tourist

Pharmacy Museum, New Orleans: 2 reviews and 1 photos


"La Pharmacie Francaise" was constructed in 1823 for Louis J. Dufilho Jr., America's first licensed pharmacist (licensed by examination in 1816). The apothecary shop, located in the heart of the Vieux Carre (French Quarter), opened officially as a museum in 1950. Two floors of permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as a medicinal herb garden in the courtyard offer visitors incite into the history of pharmacy, medicine and healthcare. Louisiana was the first state to establish pharmacy law in the United States.
