Whether or not you have a career in the medical field, old-fashioned drugstores have a certain nostalgia about them that everyone can appreciate. Few people know this, but you can step into a full-scale replica of one at the History of Pharmacy Museum at the University of Arizona! The museum features thousands of artifacts collected over the past several decades, some of which date to the 19th century. This unique museum is one of Tucson’s best-kept secrets, and you’ll never forget your visit.
You’ll find the museum in the College of Pharmacy’s Skaggs Pharmaceutical Sciences Center and Drachman Hall building at the University of Arizona Health Sciences. This is just south of the College of Medicine and Banner-University Medical Center Tucson. Click here for more information.
