    What do super heroes, crazy animals, and explosions have in common? A mad scientist probably made them! Come to the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum on Sunday, October 28 to explore where real science and mad science collide. Tours start every 20 minutes between 2 p.m. and 3:40 p.m. and feature historic medicines with surprising side effects. Upstairs, meet the Museum’s very own mad scientist bringing to life some crazy concoctions and the science behind them. Admission is $6 per person ages 5 and up. Girl Scout and Boy Scout groups welcome (program completes the Brownie Home Scientist badge). Reservations recommended and can be made through the Museum’s online store at the Event Link below. Come in costume—mad scientist /sci-fi encouraged—and receive a special take-home goodie.
