After being closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Niagara Apothecary plans to resume seasonal activities as of May 30, 2022.
For the safety of visitors, the Niagara Apothecary will follow all public health measures and will institute additional measures as needed in response to the evolving pandemic.
The Niagara Apothecary is an authentic museum restoration of an 1869 pharmacy as part of a practice that operated in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, from 1820 to 1964.
The Ontario Heritage Foundation acquired the property from the local Niagara Foundation, led its restoration and opened it as a museum in 1971. The Ontario College of Pharmacists accepted the responsibility to restore the professional practice aspects to ensure the museum accurately reflects an operating pharmacy of the Confederation period. Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with retired pharmacists and learn about the building and its artifacts.
Operating hours will be noon to 6 p.m. daily, starting on May 30 until the Labour Day long weekend (September 5). Following September 5, the Niagara Apothecary will only be open weekends until the Thanksgiving long weekend (October 10) before closing for the season.
