Apothecary Museum in Virginia

The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum in Alexandria, Virginia was a detour in our travels south to the Outer Banks of North Carolina last September. If you have an interest in the history of pharmaceuticals or old bottles or vintage medicine, you need to visit this place. It's perfectly preserved in all it's rich, aged glory. The staff was so sweet and informative and waited patiently while I snapped a million images. I highly recommend a trip to this little gem if you are anywhere near this area. It won't take up your entire day, but will be a memorable few hours.
