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.Arrange your visit to Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum and discover more family-friendly attractions in Alexandria using our Alexandria tour builder .

I did a quick tour at this mini pharmacy museum a few hours before my flight and I'm glad I did that. The tour is quick and affordable and I didn't have to wait long since they start a tour every after 30 minutes. Our guide is very knowledgeable and we are welcome to ask any questions we like. I enjoyed my trip here and amazed how they were able to maintain such a unique museum.
Very cool place! Disappointed in the guide - she wasn’t friendly or welcoming. At one point I wanted a picture of something without other people in it and so I patiently waited for people to leave the room. As I went to take the photo (which takes seconds) she impolitely informed me that the tour was over and there would be no more pictures. It was worth the $5, hopefully you get a nicer guide!
