MUSC Pharmacy Museum

The MUSC College of Pharmacy Alumni Association Museum includes a turn of the century workstation and prescriptions, photographs, and early reference texts. Devices used by pharmacists prior to the era of manufactured pharmaceuticals are displayed including: pill machines, suppository molds, mortars, pestles made of iron, wood, ceramics, and glass, and a variety of antique balances.

The museum was renamed to incorporate the MUSC College of Pharmacy Alumni Association at Alumni Weekend in 2009 after alumnus Ralph Wilkie '53 helped lead an Alumni Association fundraising effort to install new cabinetry and lighting. Many of the individual collections in the museum are named after alumni donors responsible for them.

The museum is free and open to the public. Advance reservations are required. Tours are available on request.
