Pharmacy : Chemicals, Medicines, and Cures From N to Z

The Pharmacy collection at the Edward Hand Medical Heritage Foundation includes drugs and chemicals ranging from the early 19th century to the mid 20th century. In many cases, the bottles in the collection still contain the original contents prepared by the pharmacist or pharmaceutical company.

Many bottles, pharmacy accessories and shop furniture from our collection are housed in an 1850s pharmacy unit once located in the Canis Pharmacy in New York City. Visitors to our museum can see authentic 19th century medicines displayed as they once were in an autentic 19th century pharmacy.
