The Lloyd Library and Museum is a world renowned independent research library and exhibit space devoted to bringing science, art and history to life.

Considered one of Cincinnati’s hidden treasures, the Lloyd Library and Museum was established by three brothers, John Uri, Nelson Ashley, and Curtis Gates Lloyd, who operated a pharmacy and manufactured botanical drugs in Cincinnati beginning in the late 19th century. The Library holds, acquires, preserves, and provides access to both historic and current books and journals, as well as archival materials, on a wide variety of disciplines, including:

  • botany
  • pharmacy
  • natural history
  • medicine
  • scientific history
  • visual arts

The Lloyd Library and Museum is a privately funded not-for-profit institution, open to the public and free of charge.
