One of the or perhaps the largest collection of pharmacy related things from the frontier era of Oklahoma. Plus, the Apothecary Garden is next door and maintained by the museum. It is both fun and educational.

But for me it was walking the town, beautiful architecture and all the (ghost signs) which are old advertising signs from by gone times. They have several. The museum was great but nothing special.

This place is LOADED with stuff to look at - almost too much! I stopped in right before closing. This place is in the 1000 things to see/do before you die (US/Canada version) and I'm trying to do them all. The woman working was very friendly and I absolutely enjoyed my time! That said, not a place I would need... More

So many interesting drugs that I don't think of as medicine- marijuana, opium, cocaine & many others & the pre 1904 Coca Cola advertising was very interesting Well worth a stop & the garden is nice place to take a break

A small museum packed with things to look at from the soda counter to all the old medicines. Be sure to go behind the counter and see the little office. Staff was very welcoming. Maybe not for the youngest kids. Seems like you need to read to appreciate it.

Entrance is free, but with a donation requested box in the front. It was a neat little museum. It was crazy to see how far we've come in medicine. Poke your head in if you're in the area, not worth a detour.

Never imagined that medicine has came so far. Old potions, and lotions make for entertaining reading.

This is a small museum but packed full of memoribilia. Very interesting to see all the pharmaceutical items from the past and I am not a pharmacist!

It looks like a shop, but it is a drugstore museum. If you get close you will be able to read the labels and see what different medicines and medical related items were available in the past. Very interesting.
