The pharmacy closed its doors in 1968 with much of its content still intact. It is currently the only museum of its type, decked with original period fittings, stock and equipment, including instruments used to prepare medicines prior to the advent of modern dispensing.
In June 1988, Mrs Hilda Dow donated Dow’s Pharmacy to the National Trust. It is now one of the few authentic historic shops remaining in Australia.
