The museum occupies two early 19th century buildings in Old Town Alexandria. The buildings were the site of the Stabler and Leadbeater Apothecary business throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. The interior of the 107 building has been left just as it was when the store closed in 1933, from the furnishings to the 1850s decor to the 1930s contents in the medicine bottles.

Please visit our gift shop and support the museum's education and conservation programs.

  • Got a tour here. Really cool and historic. They still have the original drugs and poison.
  • Whether you do the $5 admission (tour of the first floor only) or the $8 (both first and second floor), this is a fun, historic and interesting stop in Alexandria. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly, and you get to see the apothecary as it was decades ago. Worth it!
