Rosicrucian Alchemy Museum
Alchemy Museum

About the Museum

The first Alchemy Museum in the United States is being built at Rosicrucian Park in San Jose, California. When completed, it will be the largest museum of its kind in the world and have its own two-story building (See Photos of Museum). It will be located on the beautiful campus across from the world famous Egyptian Museum and next to the Alchemical Herb Garden. It will also have a fully equipped Alchemy Laboratory and auditorium for classes in practical and spiritual alchemy.

The purpose of this museum is to introduce guests to the important role that alchemy plays in the Rosicrucian tradition and to share some of its basic elements, including the history of alchemy, its influence on the sciences, and how its methods are applied in mystical teachings and spiritual transformation.  The Project Curator and Designer for the museum is Dennis William Hauck

Alchemy Museum Preview Exhibit Opens 

EntranceOpening ceremonies for the Alchemy Exhibit on the Rosicrucian campus in San Jose, California, were held over the Summer Solstice weekend June 20-22, 2015. Over 200 people participated in the 2-hour ceremony and tour, as well as other activities including a tour of the grounds and a 6-hour workshop on the operations of alchemy. (See Photos of Exhibits.)

The exhibit is part of the new Alchemy Museum to be housed in the former Rose-Croix University building on campus. The two-story building has 15 rooms, including a lecture hall, 12-station laboratory, herb dispensary, bookstore, and reception area. It will be the largest museum of its kind when completed. The Alchemy Museum is adjacent to the Rosicrucian Research Library and near the world-renowned Egyptian Museum and the Astronomical Observatory.

The Alchemy Garden in front of the future Alchemy Museum features four elemental gardens representing Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Each section contains corresponding elemental and planetary herbs in a raised planter formed in the shape of the appropriate alchemical symbol. At the center of the garden, embedded in the ground between the four planters, is the alchemical symbol for the mysterious Fifth Element, the Quintessence. More information:
