About the Museum

Opened in 1998, the Texas Pharmacy Museum (TPM) is the largest museum in the Lone Star State specializing in the collection, preservation, research, and exhibition of the history of pharmacy. Of the more than 140 pharmacy museums in the U.S., the TPM is one of only 18 to be affiliated with a college or school of pharmacy and it is a unique educational resource. Visitors to the museum - located in the basement of the School of Pharmacy (SOP) building on the TTUHSC campus in Amarillo - will see a variety of items, including a restored early-20th century pharmacy, tools of the trade, pharmacy products and delivery systems, pharmacy-related literature and art, sideline objects and a room recognizing and honoring Texas practitioners. More than 150 donors from 34 Texas communities and six other states have donated artifacts and othermaterials to the museum. To date, TPM's growing collection numbers more than 12,000 items.



The TPM Curator provides guided tours for the public  Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. - noon and from 1:30 - 4 p.m. and at other times by appointment. Staff from the SOP Student Services Office and the SOP's Dean's Office may also provide museum tours. All applicants for admission to the SOP visit the TPM during their interview and all incoming SOP students are introduced to the museum during their Boot Camp orientation. The TPM also serves as a research center/laboratory for SOP students, faculty and staff.
