So interesting
feb 2020 • Páry
I had never heard of this museum until recently but it has been operating since the 1930s. The apothecary shop has a fascinating history and seeing the all of the original contents was so much more interesting than I would have thought. Tours are for 10 people and last 30 minutes. Tickets are $5 and you'll want to order them in advance so that you get the time slot you want.

Accessibility notes: The building entrance is wheelchair accessible but it's tiny inside so there is really no room. Second floor of the tour appears to be accessible only by stairs.

Fantastic!
dec 2019 • Priatelia
This tour was fascinating. It covered two floors of the apothecary business - the selling floor and the storage/study floor.

Our guide was fantastic - very knowledgeable and accommodating.

Their gift shop was fun too. Unique items.

This was $5 well spent.

Like a Time Capsule
máj 2019 • Priatelia
The Apothecary Museum in Alexandria is like walking into a time capsule. It was family owned from Washington’s day, made it thru the Civil War as Alexandria was a Union hospital center, and thrived until the Great Depression. Alexandrians saved much of the equipment, bottles, pill rollers etc.
Though this is a business, like the other 2 House museums in Alexandria ( Carlyle house and Lee-Fendall house), it is all original and well worth the visitors effort.

Don't miss place to take a tour
okt 2019
This apothecary museum is amazing. The building and most of its contents date back to 1792. It was operated/owned by the same family for over 140 years, then sat vacate for years before becoming a museum. To see original contents preserved for over 200 years and listen to the history of them was mesmerizing. Our docent was very knowledge.
We purchases a multi-pass admission pass to visit many attractions in Alexandria.

Authenticity was awesome
okt 2019 • Páry
We came after being in Fredricksburg and touring their historic apothecary. Someone on that tour had recommended this one as a must do to balance the kitschy tour with an authentic historic educational experience to learn about the apothecary business and medicines of the period. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history and practices. Photos allowed was rare also.

Great Tour
sep 2019 • Páry
I toured here yesterday with my husband. The price was very reasonable. Our tour guide, John, was great and personally knew the medical aspect of apothecary. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and kind. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys museums and history!

Interesting little history museum
aug 2019
This was an insightful apothecary tour (well worth the $5 fee). It's wonderful to hear the history and stories giving us a glimpse back in history to early 1900s. Step back in time and definitely do stop in!

A true hidden gem - so worth it!
aug 2019
We just tripped over this one walking by, and then decided to take the tour because it was only $5 and 25 minutes. This was almost the highlight of a very good day. The upstairs room in particular is preserved in amazingly good condition - you're transported back in time. The tour is intriguing, and gives insight into an interesting era and profession, but at 25 minutes doesn't let you get bored (you don't have to like museums to enjoy this). Highly recommended!
