The Don & June Salvatori California Pharmacy Museum contains thousands of pharmacy artifacts from more than two centuries of pharmacy practice. Inspired by California`s unique and rich history, 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 1890`s room features a pressed tin ceiling, a collection of beautifully crafted glass bottles with glass labels and other period artifacts. The 1940`s 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.
