    A fascinating place! Don't miss the guided tour at noon on Thursdays and Fridays. The displays and stories of questionable cures are mind boggling. Do check out the top floor's exhibits.

    The museum includes cures for anything that ails you including voodoo potions & other weird medicines. The City of New Orleans operated the museum from 1950-1987, it's now run by a non profit org.

    The Pharmacy Museum is one of the hidden gems in this city. They give great examples of the history of general medicine of the modern pharmacy. Don't miss the second floor exhibits!!

    Make sure you do the tour. Matthew, our tour guide was very good and the tour was fun and informative. He'll tell you why you should "mind your own beeswax"!

    Worth the $5, but your whole visit will only take you 30 minutes. Bring a po' boy from K'Paul's next door and eat in the back garden after your tour.

    This place is seriously haunted by yellow fever victims that a dr. experimented on by the thousands! Dumped the bodies in the swamps later. Very cool little place to visit.
