Apothecary Museum

This special building was a 19th century Danish colonial pharmacy and is the only Danish pharmacy museum in the Western Hemisphere that exist in its original building. The pharmacy was located in this building from 1828 to 1970.The apothecary was restored by the St. Croix Landmarks Society and opened in 1996. The pharmacy was established by Peder Eggert Benzon to prepare medicines for the Danish military in Christiansted. The last owner of the pharmacy was Laurence C. Merrill who purchased it in 1946. Merrill continued to operate the pharmacy until he retired in 1970. He donated the contents of the pharmacy including handsome antique drug jars and pharmaceutical equipment to the St. Croix Landmarks Society. The Museum is open Monday through Saturday 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.
