A must-see when you visit Ouray! We have the largest historic pharmacy collection in the state of Colorado. Get a personal tour from the pharmacists who created it - Curt or Nancy Haggar. Get a feel for what pharmacy was like in the old mining days of Southwestern Colorado. You will feel like you stepped back in time.

Best to call ahead since we sometimes take a day off.

  • We called in the morning and Curt was kind enough to schedule our tour for later that day. His collections are incredible and he discusses the artifacts and history of alchemy / pharmacies with such enthusiasm! Curt was a joy to talk to and also gave us great recommendations for other things to do while in the area. Would definitely recommend the Alchemist Museum to anyone visiting Ouray!
  • A wonderland for historians and people who love Alchemy. YOU MUST CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT.
