The James J. O’Mara Pharmacy Museum was developed by the Apothecary Hall Trust and opened in September 1988. Our mission is to preserve and promote the history of pharmacy throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.

Our museum is located in Apothecary Hall, a heritage building constructed in 1922. It features Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles and has retained its original maple flooring and tin pressed ceilings.

Inside the museum you will discover both in-house and commercial pharmaceuticals from the past 100+ years, mortars and pestles, scales and tablet presses, perfumes and cosmetics, and two ornate show globes from the early 1900’s.
