ALEXANDRIA, VA-The Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum Will be closed from April 29 to May 17 for preservation work.

The Alexandria e-News bulletin announcing the closure reads:

The closure is part of a larger project to renew the doors and windows in the Gadsby’s Tavern Museum and Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary complexes. In order to facilitate the repairs quickly while protecting the fragile pharmacy objects, the museum is closing to allow the protective measures to remain in place throughout the work period. This project will renew existing windows and restore several window sashes to their original locations. Additionally, the repaired painted sills will be returned to their early 20th century colors in accordance with recently conducted paint sampling. We invite the public to see the work in person upon completion later this summer.

The City of Alexandria asks residents and visitors to visit other city museums and historic sites in the meantime. For more information, visit
