Niagara Apothecary

Niagara Apothecary, Niagara-on-the-Lake
5 Queen Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake
Telephone: 905-468-3845

A prescription for the past. Step through the doors of the Niagara Apothecary and see how pharmacists practised their profession over 100 years ago. Liquor by the barrel or the bottle (and even by the glass), flavourings, paints, dyes, leeches, tobacco and snuff – these were the stock-in-trade of a 19th-century pharmacy. This National Historic Site is owned by the Ontario Heritage Trust and operates as a museum by the Ontario College of Pharmacists.


The Apothecary is open from Mother's Day to Labour Day, daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Labour Day to Thanksgiving, weekends only.


Admission is free; donations welcome.
