The Don & June Salvatori California Pharmacy Museum contains hundreds of pharmacy artifacts from more than two centuries of pharmacy practice by California pharmacists. Inspired by California’s unique and rich history of pharmacy, the museum celebrates the role of the pharmacist in the promotion of health and wellbeing of Californians since the state’s inception in 1850.
A tour of the museum will take you through three distinct time periods in California’s history. The 1890s room features a pressed tin ceiling, a collection of beautifully crafted glass bottles with glass labels, and other period artifacts. The 1940s pharmacy has an extensive collection of OTC products from that era and a number of prescription books, full of directions for old remedies and mixtures. The modern pharmacy is modeled after the Good Neighbor Pharmacy and was donated by AmerisourceBergen.
