Alexandria’s Apothecary Museum is celebrating Harry Potter’s birthday on July 31 with special tours from 6 - 9 p.m. This Apothecary, where “potions” were mixed and sold for 141 years, is full of thousands of curious objects, herbs and remedies! Their elixirs may not have promised luck to the user, but many were considered “cure-alls” in their time. Visitors will discover the uses for Dragon’s Blood, Unicorn Root, Mandrake Root and other mysterious but powerful plants during their tour as they encounter the real-world counterparts to Harry Potter’s world.
