The MUSC College of Pharmacy has partnered with the MUSC Waring Historical Library to relocate the exhibits of the MUSC College of Pharmacy Alumni Association Museum as part of the college’s move from the Michael P. Araneo Building at 280 Calhoun Street to the new pharmacy facility on the MUSC Horseshoe.

In the new pharmacy facility, a large space outside the Dean's Suite has a rotating pharmacy exhibit. The exhibit displays a rotating selection of interesting artifacts culled from the museum’s collection that included a turn of the century workstation and prescriptions, photographs, early reference texts, pill machines, suppository molds, mortars, pestles made of iron, wood, ceramics, and glass, and a variety of antique balances.

Brooke Fox, university archivist and professor, has overseen the cataloging and packaging process of the museum’s materials in the Araneo Building. Many of the museum’s relics will be housed in the Waring Historical Library and/or added to its digital archives.
