Pharmacy Museum Brixen, Bressanone

4.3
#7 of 22 in Things to do in Bressanone
The thoughtfully presented collection at Pharmacy Museum Brixen was donated and collated by a family of pharmacists in the business (in the very museum building) for over 400 years. The museum presents the history of healing through exhibits of plants, animals, and minerals used as remedies around the world. You don't need medical or pharmaceutical knowledge to appreciate the educational displays--the artifacts are explained and described in language familiar to ordinary tourists. It's a quick trip through the development of medical cures that will make you look at over-the-counter pain medication with new appreciation.

    Really nice and interesting this charming Museum in the historical center ... to discover the details and explanations contained in the drawers that open some furniture ...

    Let's say maybe the expectation was high given the comments and reviews views. Certainly, particularly in its kind and full of little tidbits, presents ancient medicinal packs, sympathetic and information not known to most people. To expand (or anyway to fit whereas the whole Museum is in fact concentrated in one room, with two small rooms provided). Honest price.

    This is an interesting museum which is well laid out with attractive exhibits but without English translations there is only a limited amount which a non Italian/German speaker can benefit from it,  more »

  • Very interesting, small museum but packed with lots of information. Beautifully kept both the museum and the historic building. Make sure to check opening hours.
  • Small, but nicely done. Great collection.
