New Orleans Pharmacy Museum Review

To tour this musty shop is to step back into 19th-century medicine: even the window display, with its enormous leech jar and other antiquated paraphernalia, is fascinating. This building was the apothecary shop and residence of Louis J. Dufilho Jr., America's first licensed pharmacist with his own shop, in the 1820s. His botanical and herbal gardens are still cultivated in the courtyard. Watch for free 19th-century seasonal health tips posted in the front window.
