The Cook-Hayman Pharmacy Museum is affiliated with West Virginia University and located in the same town of Morgantown. This unique museum takes a look at the progression of medicine through our countries history and even has a model of a 19th century pharmacy.

The museum contains old medicines used such as cinnamon, licorice sticks and sassafras bark. There are also 19th century ways of packing medicines such as the “seroon” which was made from vines and dried sheep or monkey skin. The museum also contains furnishings, jars, bottles, scales and texts from the past 100 years.
