We are pleased……………

to announce the formal opening of the Kentucky Renaissance Pharmacy Museum located in Lexington’s Old Fayette County Courthouse at 215 West Main Street. Ironically, our museum is in the area that has been known since the late 1700’s as Lexington’s “Drug Store Corner.” Our grand opening, hosted during National Pharmacy Week, was well attended by members of the profession and the public. The Kentucky Renaissance Pharmacy Museum is a unique showcase for the pharmacy profession and the leading preservation organization for pharmacy in Kentucky.

At the Kentucky Renaissance Pharmacy Museum’s formal opening, two of the planned four exhibit areas were featured with examples of some of the early tools of our profession.  These relics of early professional involvement (1890-1930’s) and mortars and pestles collected from around the world by Kentucky trained pharmacists demonstrate the expanding realm of influence enjoyed by the professionals of our state. Donations also include memorabilia from Dunn Drugs, McAdams and Morford and Hubbard and Curry pharmacies, all of which were located near the “Drug Store Corner.” We are proud to display part of the rich history of pharmacy in Kentucky and each week we are continuing to further develop the museum space and exhibits.

The Kentucky Renaissance Pharmacy Museum is a non-profit 501(c)(3) museum and, as part of the Lexington History Center, does not charge admission and we are one of two permanent museums in the Lexington History Center. Operation of the Kentucky Renaissance Pharmacy Museum continues through the donations and gifts to the museum by those who have an appreciation of, and a desire to preserve the rich history of the practice of pharmacy in Kentucky.

We invite you to come visit us and enjoy the history of Kentucky pharmacy. In a very short period of time, we have been fortunate enough to preserve and display pieces of our history for future generations. We encourage you to visit us often as we continue to develop the Kentucky’s signature pharmacy museum.
