Niagara Apothecary

Potions, lotions, unguents and tinctures galore

In the 1800s, the local pharmacy was a unique destination. There, one could buy anything from barrels of liquor to blood-sucking leeches.

Step into this quaint 1860’s apothecary and examine rows and rows of ingredients and patent medicines used by pharmacists over 100 years ago.

This is a lovely old store where they sold pharaceuticals in the olden days. There are original old bottles to see and information about drugs used at the time to help with illnesses.

As a pharmacy worker myself, it was interesting to see an apothecary. Nice to walk through and see the collection

Great, if not small museum. It's set up much as if time had stood still from the turn of the century. DO talk with the staff members, as they're very knowledgable of the displays and methods used...
