The Chandler Chemical Museum was a collection of chemicals, products, and various curiosities collected by Charles Frederick Chandler, Dean of SEAS, during his time at Columbia. The collection was formally organized as a museum and displayed in Havemeyer Hall. The original dedicated space has since been converted into lab space and in 1987 the museum was dismantled and its collection spread out across campus, including Art Properties and the Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Many items are still on display in glass display cases in the hallway of the 2nd and 4th floors of Havemeyer.
