  • Nice museum! We encountered mistakenly when we visited the castle. Did not know it was there and what to expect, but a very nice surprise! Nice old collection. Informative. Photography with flash forbidden. Without flash is possible. Small souvenir shop present.
  • They've got interesting info about inventions and discoveries on the pharmaceutical industry. They also try to make it interactive, it's worth to check it out. The visit won't take you longer than 1 hour
  • This place was great. Seeing all the different medicines and they have everything in Deutsche and English.
  • Very well done museum. An in depth look at the history of medicine throughout the past couple hundred years. The building itself was originally servants quarters where the museum portion is.
  • Excellent museum, well preserve, all very clear. You travel back in time! Amazing experience! Great place for kids!
