The Oesper Museum & Collections are a unique and hidden treasure. They showcase and document the history of chemistry in many ways: historic chemical apparatus museum, replica 1900 chemical laboratory, prints and portraits collection, and a library/rare books collection. The Museum & Collections are a partnership of the UC Chemistry Department and UC Libraries. Read more and view virtual displays from the chemical apparatus museum:
