Rothschild Apothecary Shop

Step back through time as you enter the Rothschild Apothecary Shop, an authentic recreation of a 1900s-era pharmacy. Filled with real medicines, herbs, and medical supplies, the Rothschild Apothecary Shop is free to enter with admission to the MOST. Our volunteers and staff will be happy to talk with you about the history of medicine and show you some of their favorite historical items around the shop. Discover the origins of our modern-day sodas, find out what medicine you may have been prescribed for a toothache, and learn about how pharmacists used poisons.

The Rothschild Apothecary Shop is open primarily on Saturday and Sunday for a half-hour starting at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm (subject to change).
