    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.

    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.

    Take the tour at 1pm. Not sure if I'd like the museum much without the animated, very interesting explanation from the historian. With the tour, this was a highlight.

    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!!

    This is the best museum I've ever seen. I love turn of the century history and the antiques were beautiful. Medical history was fascinating.

    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.

    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.
