As much as I enjoyed the trip, I was disappointed to have missed two sights I was really looking forward to seeing: Touro Synagogue of New Orleans and the History of Pharmacy Museum. I'm definitely returning to NOLA to see both of them as soon as I can.
In the meantime, here are some photos I took of the outside and window display of the History of Pharmacy Museum. History buffs will understand why I was so eager to go inside. However, the museum was closed on the one full day we had in NOLA.
According to the Pharmacy Museum's website, Louis Dufilho, a Portuguese immigrant, was the first licensed pharmacist to practice in New Orleans from 1823-1850. He was born in 1788 in France and died there in 1856. He and his wife, Emy, had seven children, all born in New Orleans.
