What do super heroes, crazy animals, and explosions have in common? A mad scientist probably made them! Come to the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum to explore where real science and mad science collide. Tours (45 mins.) start every 30 minutes between 1 and 4:30 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.  Girl Scout and Boy Scout groups welcome (program almost completes the Brownie Home Scientist badge) but reservations recommended because space is limited.

Admission Fee: $6 per person; reservations recommended; tickets online at
