“The Cabildo is a Louisiana State Museum with some terrific artifacts from New Orleans' past. I love seeing an old K&B pharmacy signs and Pontchartrain Beach amusement park memorabilia. Experience a full Mardi Gras Indians suit and marvel at the intricate, year-round, hand sewing.”

“$7 excellent museum! 2 permanent exhibits worth your time. Both a hurricane Katrina exhibit and a history of Mardi Gras exhibit. Truly fascinating and not at all boring. Make sure to do the Katrina one first since it is super depressing :P Don't let them talk you into $12 to add the Cabildo Museum, it is boring as crap.”

“A feast for the eyes as you step back to an era gone bye. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an historic building within the Vieux Carre Historic District, the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum showcases its extensive collection and provides interpretive educational programs to present and preserve the rich history of pharmacy and healthcare in Louisiana; past and present. THE HISTORY OF LOUIS J. DUFILHO, JR. America’s First Licensed Pharmacist Dufilho’s most significant contribution to the history and integrity of the field of pharmacy took place in New Orleans in 1816. In 1804, the State of Louisiana, led by Governor Claiborne, passed a law that required a licensing examination for pharmacists wishing to practice their profession. Prior to this law and before Louisiana became a U.S. State, there were some informal territory licensing measures, but none were enforced. A person could apprentice for six months and then compound and sell his or her own concoctions without any regulations or standards. The public received incorrect doses and erroneous medications. In 1804, Governor Claiborne established a board of reputable pharmacists and physicians to administer a three-hour oral examination given at the Cabildo in Jackson Square. Louis J. Dufilho, Jr. was the first to pass the licensing examination, therefore making his pharmacy the first United States apothecary shop to be conducted on the basis of proven adequacy.”
