  • In the Heidelberg Castle. Admission included in the entrance fee for the Castle. I was a pharmacist myself so badly I went wanted Museum. Exhibition equipment for on-site or reproduce old pharmacy, such as in the eras, to extract the active ingredients. Equipment is even today, such as aspirin, insulin and familiar drug, Sartorius digital balance still very indebted was displayed.

  • LOVE IT.. Fascinating to see as a medical professional. Some great information and an amazing display of the pharmacy through time
  • Loved the exhibit. Especially loved how richly decorated some of the artifacts were.
  • Rich presentation of the pharmacy history in Germany. Many things to see and read. Free entry because you've already paid to come into the castle. Might take your about an hour or so to go through all the exhibits. There are English translations for each section.
  • Great one. It teaches lot of things .
  • If you're even semi curious about medicine and how it used to be done this is worth checking out!
