take the tour, it was well worth it to see the storage floors and learn how this location evolved through the centuries. And how medicines changed with time. An herbalists dream come true.

Although we had a less than impressive tour guide, the Apothecary provided a glimpse of the past which would be of interest to the general public, but perhaps particularly to health care workers, who might be interested in the history of drugs in this country.

We came here mid-day on a Saturday. We were part of a 6 person group. The tour was terrific (and cheap!). I would highly recommend it, although it's not for toddlers or babies as it transverses several floors.

This Apothecary takes you back in time to where Martha Washington ordered her drugs and items for what ailed her! Amazing history of this building and the business. Very interesting short tour at a very good price!

there is plenty for both a layman / tourist AND a modern-day pharmacist to learn about the history of medicines in this amazingly well preserved shop that had a long history serving Old Town Alexandrians, including many prominent clients whose names appear in history books

The Apothecary is a step back in time. It dates back to the mid 1700's with Martha Washington and the items from 1900's are still there from when the store closed. Good tour for history buffs. Need to be able to climb stairs to get...More

The authentic apothecary has all the original bottles, potions and instruments sold in the 1800's when it was closed. A dentist guided us through the museum discussing the old remedies and medicines used compared to what is done today. The second floor shows the manufacturing...More
